This chapter looks at how to involve people who do not speak English in a way that acknowledges the presence of baseline language issues in whatever level and method of involvement is chosen. The first section describes the conceptual base, and refers to two research projects that the authors have conducted and worked on with translators/interpreters. The chapter then considers the way the same conclusion was achieved. It ends by drawing out the advantages of working with interpreters.

Keywords: baseline language issues; method of involvement; conceptual base; translators; interpreters
