Looking for company that will make cards in other languagues re disabilities  I have , medication I take, emergency contacts.  Also what else to put on card?   Company I currently use for main disability only does cards in English, that main helpline can be called and they have a department that can offer translation services.   Feels a bit long winded, particularly if something happened abroad and emergency number on bracelet or necklace not noticed.   Prefer to have cards too.   
Thank you for any information

    Can you use Google translate, print out the information and go somewhere to get them laminated?

    Do you really need to translate the medication information? I’ve been abroad many times over the years and never done that. To be honest they don’t usually look at the medication. 
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
