Translation Cards

If you suffer from a food allergy or intolerance, Allergy UK can help protect you and your family when travelling abroad.

Translation cards are available from Allergy UK and will ensure others are made aware of your allergy or intolerance despite any language barriers. These together with our Fact Sheet on Travelling with Food Allergy, are designed to give you peace of mind so you can enjoy your time overseas.

The Cards

A set of three plastic cards are provided, each about the size of a credit card. The cards feature an allergy alert message, an emergency message and a message for use in restaurants to ensure that your food order is free from the particular allergen that causes your reaction.

The cards are printed in English on one side and the language of the country you are visiting on the reverse side.

Cards for over 70 different allergens are available in 36 languages:

Balinese, Bengali, Bulgarian, Cambodian (Khmer), Chinese (Simplified), Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Flemish, French, German, Greek, Hindi, Hungarian, Icelandic, Italian, Indonesian, Japanese, Lao, Malay, Maltese, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Punjabi, Russian, Slovene, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Tamil, Thai, Turkish and Vietnamese.

Please check with our Allergy Helpline for details. Other languages may be available on request.

A set of three cards cost £15 per language.
