Syrian refugees create app to cut through German bureaucracy | Reuters

NEW YORK (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - As a Syrian migrant arriving in Berlin, Munzer Khattab could barely say a word in German, let alone fill out a pile of forms in the language. So over the past year Khattab has not only learned German but also worked with five other Syrian refugees or asylum seekers to design a smartphone app to make forms less daunting. The app, called 'Bureaucrazy', to be launched in January, will translate various forms into Arabic and English for newcomers facing a pile of paperwork ranging from registering with authorities to opening a bank account. #United States #Technology #Middle East #Europe #markets #United Kingdom #german
