I have used a phone translator app to communicate in their native language with parents who don’t speak English. It worked pretty well, and parents appreciated the extra effort I took to convey the message to them.

From my experience parents often are able to read English so a way to communicate is through email. Keep the words concise and separate the subjects being discussed.

As a French native but fluent in English, when I have families where parents do not speak much English I use a translator, either on my phone or via email as it is easier for them to read and translate then send me a response. I also ask if they have other family or friends that could help translate.
