Sharing my parents' experience for B2 Visa. They had first applied back in 2017 and had not been approved. We took a chance during pandemic and applied for a second attempt, could not get Hindi appointment so took an English appointment, my father speaks english and my mother doesn't, it seems like you can ask for a translator at the consulate if needed once you get there but they decided to proceed with English.
Consulate was busy like usual, you have to keep mask on at all while in consulate including during the interview.
