Default Na'vi and other human languages

I'm curious how this would go. Sure english is one language they do know. But what if they met a human who didn't speak it or it was a second language?

Say Neytiri or another Na'vi met a human from Japan who didn't speak english at all, and needed a translator when talking to others.

I hope the sequels have something like this in it. It would expand on Na'vi meeting other humans who are really different to what they know.

The examples of the World of James Cameron's Avatar contain within reflected aspects of its core story symbology, The root structures of person to person internal spirit recognition "I see you" that form a core part of essence of who the Na'vi people are, This "place of expression" between cultures is capable of going beyond language barriers even if we don't understand each others spoken languages. James Cameron has reflected his intensions that in future settings the Na'vi relationship with people from earth will grow and develop, I would not be at all surprised that the Na'vi in there sharing of dialog with humans on Pandora become aware of Earths languages through education and experence .. take a look at the roots of First Peoples language family's and the common roots shared within each region here on earth . for example the meaning of the word "Osiyo" in the Tsalagi peoples language (Cherokee is a name "we" gave there people its not who they are) how is it like "Oel Ngati Kameie" how does it differfrom the English word Hello in its place of expression ? from a reflective perspective I would say by story example with respect the Na'vi have a lot to teach human kind but remember behind every authentic mirror story there is a "source reflection" our ancestral memory's resonate with
