The Refugee Phrasebook is a multilingual tool that provides basic useful vocabulary related to the most common immediate needs. It is an open collaborative project that is aimed to provide the most important vocabulary to refugees, by assembling important phrases from various fields and encouraging designers and experts in the field to improve on the material. 
The project is noncommercial and the books will be available for free. They are also creating a Medical and a Juridical Phrasebook.
