Abstract: This report describes an Android application for facilitating exchange between English-speaking and Dari-speaking domain experts with the help of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers. The U.S. Army Research Army Laboratory (ARL) has been developing English-to-Dari phrasebooks in a variety of specialized domains (medical, legal, financial, et al.). This application provides bi-directional English-Dari text translation using a dictionary of medical phrases selected and translated from the English-language medical training manual, Fundamental Critical Care Support (FCCS), published by the Society for Critical Care Medicine (SCCM). The application is database-driven and is domain agnostic and easily adaptable to other specialized domains.
