Twisted vertex operators based on rational lattices have had many applications in vertex operator algebra theory and conformal field theory. In this paper, "relativized" twisted vertex operators are constructed in a general context based on isometries of rational lattices, and a generalized twisted Jacobi identity is established for them. This result generalizes many previous results. Relatived untwisted vertex operators had been studied in a monograph by the authors. The present paper includes as a special case the proof of the main relations among twisted vertex operators based on even lattices announced some time ago by the second author.
