When I read White's paper (Comment. Math. Helvetici, 1989) named: "A new proof of the compactness theorem for integral currents", I am confused about lemma 2.2, the constant vector field lemma. Can someone tell me what is the definition of a current $T$ is translation invariant along the direction $V$?
