Translation Cards

If you or your child have a food allergy, Allergy UK can help protect you and your family when travelling abroad.

Call our Helpline to order

Translation cards are available from Allergy UK and will ensure others are made aware of your allergy despite any language barriers.

A set of three plastic cards per language 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.

A set of three cards cost £15 per language with a 15% discount on three sets of cards or more. Please check with our Allergy UK Helpline for details, and allow 2 weeks before travel.

How to Order

Please ring our helpline on 01322 619898 to discuss your exact requirements including allergens and language.

Payment can be made by credit/debit card through our helpline.

I’d just like to say that the translation cards I purchased for India were really good. The chefs/hotels took my nut allergy very seriously and were very complimentary regarding the cards. Sadly unlike some restaurants here in the UK who don’t like the idea of serving someone with a nut allergy! I can’t recommend the cards enough and will certainly order additional sets. – Anonymous.

These translations have been obtained and checked by a professional translator/translation company. The cards are correct at the time of printing and Allergy UK cannot accept any responsibility for any matters arising from the use of these cards. From December 2021 we will be reviewing all our translation cards every three years.  To make sure you have the most up to date version please make a note of the purchase date of your translation cards and we recommend that you replace them three years from the date of purchase.
