I believe screen-readers in form mode do not speak anything besides legends,
labels, and controls. So I would not include information using paragraphs,
I'd try to move this into a label or a legend.

May be something like:

check box | label: I require an interpreter 
select    | label: [proper wording here]

As John suggested, the next step is to address the whole i18n problem...
