I have dealt with you in the past and wanted to let you know that your gluten free translation cards are fantastic! We were in a busy street in the middle of Istanbul and wanted to have lunch on our way to visit Topkapi. I showed your gluten free card and ended up being shown by the owner by way of pointing what I could and could not have. When my meal came, it looked so good our friends ordered the same lunch. It also worked in Rhodes, Greece as the owner advised me they put flour in their rice which is most unusual for me. Thanks to your cards we are able to travel wherever we wish and have absolutely no problem with my gluten free diet. In fact, I feel that we are given superior treatment as the owner normally becomes involved and the cards are taken directly to the chef to confirm that the food is all right for me. I have told many people of your business and I hope they are using it to their advantage as I do.

I’m back from Japan and wanted to let you know that your Japanese food allergy card made a tremendous difference! I was able to get very good meals customized to my food requirements. Thanks to you, I did not have a single food related reaction during my entire trip. I really appreciate your extra efforts with the translation and timing. Thanks again!

I have returned from my trip to Bangkok. The strongly worded food allergy cards were amazing. First, I asked the waiter if peanuts or peanut oil were used in their recipes. They usually said no. When I showed the waiters the strongly worded card, they paused, went to check with the cook and/or manager, and usually suggested a particular meal to eat. At most Thai restaurants I stuck with dessert. One restaurant was extremely accommodating, cooking my food from scratch with freshly washed pots and utensils. The SelectWisely cards were a life-saver!

Our entire family thanks you for your food allergy translation cards! We ordered some in Italian, French and Spanish due to our son's severe peanut and tree nut allergies. On our first night in Rome we handed one to our waiter, who promptly took it back to the chef who said they would make him something special since they did indeed use peanut oil in their kitchen. That was one of many situations when those cards came in very handy, since we aren't fluent in any of the languages. Your cards were an immense help to us.

My daughter did great in China with her food choices. She enjoyed the most freedom she has ever experienced eating out in restaurants. Dairy is used very infrequently in Chinese cooking; however, when needed, the food allergy cards were of great help. The Chinese were very intrigued with the cards. Several people commented that the translations were very accurate and precise! Thank you so much for providing this service; it is well needed and very useful!
