[April 22, 2009]  ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- Many non-English speakers will soon be able to read prescription drug instructions in their primary language.

Five companies announced Tuesday that pharmacies at more than 700 stores statewide will translate the information.

The companies are Target, Wal-Mart, Costco, Duane Reade (dwayn REED') and A&P.

The companies agreed with New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo to counsel and provide written translations in Spanish, Chinese, Italian, Russian and French.
