Communication tools

It can be hard to be in a new country where few people speak your language. These apps and services might make your stay in Bulgaria a little bit easier.

Tarjimly can provide you with a free, real-time translator on the phone at any time.

The ICOON for Refugees app is a nonverbal, universal language guide with 1,200 symbols and photos to help you overcome language barriers.

VENTO.TV/refugees can connect you to people who can live-translate via video call.

The Refugee Phrasebook Interactive app is a small translation app with about 1100 useful phrases for communication between refugees and supporters in more than 30 languages.

With Google Translate, you can translate text in 103 languages. For some languages, you can translate text just by pointing your phone’s camera lens at the text.
