Refugee Phrasebook is an open collaborative project that provides a collection of useful phrases, icons and links for refugees and their helpers to support them after their arrival in a new place. It assembles important phrases from various fields and encourages designers and experts to improve on the material, for example, by creating basic vocabulary tables for medical and legal terminology in 44 different languages. Together with a global network of volunteer translators, editors, designers, printers, publishers, lawyers, doctors, etc. plus partner institutions in Germany, Greece and the Netherlands, Refugee Phrasebook continues to develop sustainable communication tools to help support an open culture. All materials are adaptable to local needs and are distributed with open licenses in ready-to-print formats for immediate use all over Europe and the world.
