Translation cards available in different languages - I have shown the English Language one in my picture.

I have personally used these - my daughter is actually Gluten Intolerant - which although is not celiac is quite hard to explain in a different language! So far I have used in France, Spain and Tunisia it made life so much easier, When traveling abroad I always try to learn some of the language but this is something I don't want to take a chance with :-)

These are free to print - They do say they are happy to take donations by PayPal if you want to they also say (If you can't donate, a link is just as valuable, so if you have a blog or website, please consider linking them) therefore in recognition of this their link is:
http://www.celiactravel.com/cards/

They offer the service in 54 Languages! The cards are in PDF format so are ready to print

Why is this cold? since being diagnosed I have used these in a number of languages and don't know how I would manage without them. It reduces the risk of being "glutened" if your language skills are not up to scratch. Good post - just sorry I didn't think of it!

Thanks for your post :) sadly people don't leave feedback when they vote cold, I realise there is an option to donate to them but you are under no obligation and they are quite happy to be mentioned on blogs etc.

My reason for posting was to let others know that may not know of the website service - I have found it really helpful when we have been abroad with my daughter - she is gluten intolerant but still needs to avoid things as it can make her unwell.

if it gets voted cold so be it - at least I will have let people know of the service - it would be nice though if people gave a reason for cold voting though.

Again thanks for your post and support :)

I think it was mainly due to ignorance, and people thinking its simply a 'fad', I know my Coeliac cousin gets looked down on for her 'diet fad'

Its quite sad people feel this way, anyway voted hot as I know several people who are coeliac or cannot have gluten wheat etc

Thank you for voting :) definitely not a fad! For people who cannot eat gluten life can be really difficult, I know there are varying levels of this my daughter in intolerant it gluten, wheat, oats, barley and rye she cannot have them in any form or it makes her ill but she is not coeliac - she was tested. Any help or information we can get we use and we share with others.

Thank you for this, it will be of great use for any trips to these countries.

Shame they don't mention anything about cross contamination that we can still be ill from.

All being well they will greatly enhance our chances of staying healthy

:) Thanks for your reply - regarding the cross contamination it may be possible to add something to the card - although you may need a bit of a Google translate for that - it certainly gives a good foundation for wording - perhaps if you contact the site directly they may be able to help. :)

I know you never said it was a fad, I was referring to how you said other people simply thinking it is and your cousin getting looked down on because of her "fad diet". When I read that I really felt your cousin, people are so judgemental about these things - and I agree I think it is down to ignorance, people just aren't that aware of it, to be honest until my daughter had problems I was 100% sure of the facts but I would never judge someone who says they can't eat a certain food for whatever reason. :)

Not relevant for me personally I'm glad to say but it could be invaluable for some people. I was particularly interested to see they had been used in Tunisia, where incidentally they have just got a gluten-free bakery, and I'll put a link on a couple of Tunisian websites.

:) Thanks for you kind comment and for the offer to put on other websites I'm sure it will be of great use to people, as you can print then in different languages you can have it in Arabic for Tunisia but have an English translation on the otherwise as well if you want or any language you want they have 54 to choose from :)

We had no problem at all in Tunisia a few years ago - a lot of our time we were at our hotel which was all inclusive - so that was easy but when we did go out and on excursions we used the cards :)

I have actually been asked in restaurants if they can keep the card as a quick reminder of what to avoid and what we cannot have in any dish because they are so informative. I keep a supply with me at all times so usually can oblige!!

That's fantastic :) I think actually it's good they have the celiactravel.com web address on them as it means anyone who does have them or gives them/gets them can easily find the site if they need more ether in that language or in another one :)

Fantastic :) I went to Germany years ago (pre daughter) it was work related I was visiting our head office in Pfungstadt for a company I used to work for - I swear I have never before or since eaten so much cake in my life! Everywhere we went they gave us cake :) - I would like to go back to Germany at some point and would definitely take the cards with me as I know we would need them for my daughter.

Yes, everyone thinks you will have a hard time in places like Italy or Spain - nope! Germany is the hardest (and I would imagine France is the worst), because they are so wheat-dependent. At least the Germans are also, generally, allergy-conscious, as I was able to find lovely-looking GF foccaccia to bring back! (It was Schar brand, if you're interested.)

.

We had no problem in Lanzarote they were pretty good - when we visited France some years back in Brittany about the only thing we could find my daughter could eat was crepes (made from buckwheat) she eat a lot of those!

The focaccia sounds lovely! Schar was one of the first brands I came across when I was told my daughter was gluten intolerant - we have used their products they also sent me some samples years ago and a whole pile of information which I still have in a gluten free folder in my kitchen!

Looks like you can get the focaccia here too - you have to be registered though -or it may be in shops but I guess that would take some serious hunting down http://www.schaer.com/en/gluten-free-products?cat=%7BE2E524EB-FF92-426B-8337-5DF801824A58%7D:)

If things are being made in the traditional way like that there is defiantly a risk, some places do have separate cooking areas etc but I agree you have to be careful.

I know whenever we out anywhere we are always careful to explain daughters needs and we double check food when it arrives - you can't see what goes on behind the scenes though so there is always an element of risk of cross contamination.

Thanks for the post, really useful. Perhaps only gluten intolerants should be allowed to vote/leave comments!

:) Thank you - I don't mind who votes really - I do think though across the board with HUKD if you feel you should be voting cold you should have the decency to give a reason - if I did I would give a reason - at least then the OP would know why!

Its a shame really as I think it puts people of posting things, it took me a long time to build up enough confidence to put any deals on here eventually I have decided that people will vote whatever way they want I won't take it personally but I'm sure others would.

I'm just saying that Italians are actually leading the way in GF pasta and pizza substitutes - understandably.

i seem to remember they were producing GF pasta way way back before it was available in the uk but i would hardly call a restaurant that does GF food "leading the way"
As i said, wheat flour fills the air with very little disturbance and i will never go near a building that produces non GF italian food, maybe some less sensitive to gluten can get away with it but not i alas.

It was merely an example. You seem completely determined to be contrary - and I did not call that restaurant "leading the way", I said "Italians are actually leading the way", so kindly cease misreading my words.

With your inability to read/comprehend a simple sentence, I highly doubt that.

Communication is a two way street.
I can't help but feel you value your opinion much more than peoples health, the very thought of someone contradicting you appears to have you irked to the point where you personally insult someone despite his statements carrying some weight.

I see the comments about gluten-Intolerant but not Coeliac. What's the difference?

Coeliac disease is an illness characterised by weight loss diarrhoea and anaemia. There are many side effects.
Non coeliac gluten sensitivity or 'intolerance' is a relatively new concept for people who may experience bloating or discomfort without the evidence required for coeliac

My daughter as you probably read is gluten intolerant - the symptoms can be very similar to coeliac and the only way they could tell she wasn't was by doing tests - I have put a link below that may be helpful:

Thanks for that. I am actually coeliac, but didn't have a clue there. Never realised that there were further than that.
