Japanese Translation Company: Afghan interpreters

These interpreters have been threatened by the Taliban, and there is concern for their safety after coalition troops withdraw.

New Zealand's Defence Minister Jonathan Coleman sums up a nation’s gratitude for helping keep the country's troops safe:

    Translators in a war zone are taking their lives in their hands. I'm glad they will be provided support from the government they have served.

    Wow, some translators are risking thir lives and families! I live in New Zealand and it's good to know they are going to be taken care of.

    Interpreters are often forgotten in the backstage of things. It's nice to know New Zealand values and respect their work by offering refuge.
