I'd love to hear about the UN policy/practice.

My husband was a volunteer election monitor for OSCE in Kosovo (twice) and 
the Ukraine (Orange Revolution), and I got the impression from his 
accounts that the teams of monitors (usually of several nationalities) 
were provided with an English-speaking interpreter through whom they 
communicated with quite a wide range of the local people (there were UN 
peacekeepers in Kosovo the first time and they communicated with the 
monitors in English but I don't know about the UN people's dealings with 
the locals). If you're in a 'live' war zone, it's probably lots harder 
than that!
