If your fiancee doesn't know English very well but still signs it, do you guys think it should be translated to her native language just underneath the English version?

Carlos doesn't know much English and we used the sample on this site and didn't translate anything. I explained what it said and he signed it. We didn't have any problems. Nobody questioned him about it at the Embassy in Chile.

If your fiance doesn't speak English, do like Peter Miami did and do two. One in English and one in his/her native language. NOT for the USCIS or DOS but for your fiance, so they understand everything they're signing. I don't think it's wise to just verbally explain a legal document and then ask them to sign it. I wouldn't sign a legal doc in another language I didn't understand! would you?
