My mom is really worried about the interview process. She worries that they ask her question and she doesn't understand them. We speak a language called Malayalam (Asian/Indian) that is not spoken by a lot of people. What if we can't find a translator. Should i get a lawyer to go with her for the interview? Please i need some help
You can get a translator. There may not even be an interview, sometimes they just send the card.

My colleague is right, if she is called for an interview, CIS may let you translate for her.
