I don't speak Spanish!
Interesting situation at the Plymouth Congress.
North wanted to change her bid. I wanted to ascertain why North bid as she did in order to determine if there was mechanical error.
North speaks little English. Her partner usually translates for her. I was unhappy about using him as a translator for obvious UI reasons.
There was one other person in the room who could translate - East at the same table.
Limited in options, I allowed East to translate (away from the table).
Should / could I have done anything different?
(Incidentally she claimed mechanical error but I disallowed it - 2D (her "intended" bid and 2NT not being close enough in the bidding box).
