For those traveling please post what you know or can find to assist them in locating translation services, text, etc.
Thanks.

Stay Safe,

Chris

For example someone wrote to us:

travelling to Changhai china

I believe they speak mandarin and cantonese in Shanghai. I need to know how to say:
"I have a life threathening peanut allergy. Do not give me any food with peanuts or food that was cooked in peanut oil please, it could kill me. Thanks. " Or do you have a universal phrase. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Chris,
My close friend speaks Mandarin and her business partner speaks Cantonese. I have forwarded it to them, and they will send me the translation. It may be a day or two because they are travelling for work right now.

There are laminated cards with a similiar message available from [url="http://www.SelectWisely.com"]www.SelectWisely.com[/url]
They make them in a variety of languages and allergies, including peanuts and two kinds of Chinese. They are designated as "mainland" Chinese and another type, so please visit their website and see if they have the Chinese variations you need.
I learned about these on this site a while ago and thought they were a great idea!
