Low Income Application for Burners Abroad

I have a friend that should at least apply for a Low Income ticket, but their last couple of years were abroad, in a non-english speaking country. As such, tax forms and whatnot would not be in English (w/o a translation). A Professional one can get pricey... maybe there are forms on the internet that explain what each field is if one searches.

Does anyone have any experience with this? I know many factors are taken into account for the low income tickets... but I'm wondering if they'd throw the W2-equivalent forms out the window when they realize they are written in chicken scratch. :D

Put some notes in with the forms to indicate what the fields mean. Don't count on anyone being able to decipher foreign tax forms, or finding someone who can. The easier you make it on them, the greater chance they'll take the effort to consider the form.
