"Parties have a responsibility to understand the contract before signing. The general and well established principle of contract law is that one who is ignorant of the language in which a document is written, or who is illiterate, may be bound to a contract by negligently failing to learn its contents.

Except in cases of fraud, the fact that an offeree cannot read, write, speak, or understand the English language is immaterial to whether an English-language agreement the offeree executes is enforceable."

Case law is not so clear cut as the examples provided show.
