Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    Even in a work environment as unsafe as modern Iraq, the job of a war-zone translator stands out as exceptionally dangerous.

    Dozens of interruptors hired to work with U.S. troops have died in the course of the war, victims of combat or targets for assassination.

  2. Hmmm, not sure id want to rely on the babel fish tool to tell me what someone was saying, but it could prove useful for providing a corroberation of what a translater was saying, especially if he/she was being threatened by the person that they were translating for.

    Clearly we in the UK would never be able to afford it so i guess i wont need to worry about it too much.
