How should I approach asking for a letter of recommendation when the letter writer doesn't write well in English?

I'm applying for a job that wants a letter of recommendation, and the person who I want to write my letter does not speak English. The sticky part of the situation is that she thinks she writes well in English but doesn't. She could write me a great letter and is the only person I know who can attest to my abilities in the field that the position is in. To make things more difficult, she lives in another country so all of our correspondence is via email. Would it be totally tacky to ask her to forward me a copy of her letter before she sends it in? What are my other options?
