How can I quantify drafters' reliability?

Is there any standardized method to evaluate drawings (and drafter)?
The problem with most drafters is that they have very bad English skills. 
 
Unfortunately,  that is now also true for engineers in the United States.  In many cases they are unable to even explain their question correctly.
