MANILA, Philippines—The only website honoring the Philippines’ role in defending the Republic of Korea against communist conquest during the Korean War can now be read in Korean, Filipino and Cebuano.
The website, “The Philippine Expeditionary Force to Korea (PEFTOK): 1950-1955,” is located at www.peftok.blogspot.com.
It now includes a drop down Google Translate window that allows rapid translation of the entire PEFTOK website content in any of the 71 listed languages. The drop down menu is found immediately beneath the website title.
Art Villasanta, the Philippines’ Korean War historian who wrote and created the PEFTOK website, said the new feature was added to commemorate the 60th anniversary on July 27 of the signing of the Armistice that ended fighting in the Korean War (1950-53).
