Translation tools for children

Hello, Recently, my child's elementary school enrolled Afghan and Syrian refugee students. The school is used to Spanish speakers but has not had to handle Arabic translations before this. To help the older students during classes, the school has given them tablets and they are using Google Translate. But there are younger students (6 and 8 year olds) that cannot use this type of simultaneous translation because it is too difficult for them to type that much or that fast. Does anyone know of a translation tool for younger kids to use in the classroom that is similar to Google Translate? Thank you!
