A number of tech companies, such as Apple, Google and Facebook, have joined the global efforts to aid Europe's ongoing refugee crisis. With that in mind, Google today introduced a new initiative designed to assist the migrant relief overseas, adding to the matched donations it announced last month. The search giant has now built a mobile site for people in need, called Crisis Info Hub, which offers quick and simple access to vital information about lodging, medical facilities and transportation. Google's also looking for volunteers to help improve Translate, a service that's useful to the migrants and refugees who are in a new country. If you speak German or Arabic and you'd like to lend a hand, head over to Google's Translate Community page to get started.
