Mullane and Translation

Amber Leasure-Earnhardt asked in the review session why Mullane's requirement of notice reasonably calculated to apprise the defendant of the pendency of the action would not require translation of the summons (and complaint?) into the defendant's language when one knows the defendant does not speak English. (After all, the known mental incompetence of the defendant cannot be ignored in determining what is adequate notice under Mullane.) But courts have found otherwise.
