Social app for refugees and locals translates in real-time | Springwise

Instead of complaining or worse using the refugees as a politcal chip, Swedish programmers have created a utility mobile app that works to alleviate some of the frustrations of being in a foreign land.

The developers say the app aims to break down social and language barriers between Swedes and refugees. Welcome! is translated into Arabic, Persian, Swedish and English, and it enables users to create, host and join activities, as well as ask questions of locals, chat with new contacts, and browse events that are nearby.
