Designed for humanitarian response, Translation Cards is an app for Android devices that allows for tap-and-play audio translations, even in the most remote bandwidth-constrained locations.
Each card contains an audio translation, optional text translation, and works across multiple languages. Any organisation can rapidly create a deck of cards catered to their own specific use cases.
Translation Cards is a collaboration between Google.org, ThoughtWorks, Mercy Corps, and UNHCR Innovation. In 2016 the app received an award for innovation at the United Nations Humanitarian Summit.
Translation Cards is available on the Google Play Store for free. The app comes bundled with a default deck designed by UNHCR Innovation for humanitarian refugee crisis response in Europe.
