I hope this list of how to say, “I am allergic to tree nuts” in 50 languages will help prevent nut allergy sufferers from contact with tree nuts which could result in an anaphylactic reaction, hospitalization or even death.
I have a good reason for publishing this post on how to say “I am allergic to tree nuts” in many different languages.
You may or may not know that my daughter is severely allergic to all tree nuts, including pink peppercorns. For those of you who aren’t familiar with food allergies, this means if she ingests a trace amount of any tree nut, she could have an anaphylactic reaction, and die. (In essence, the allergic reaction closes her airway from the swelling which occurs.)
This is beyond serious: it’s life and death. It is also why I get upset when I hear the word “allergy” thrown around so much when it’s more of an intolerance, or dislike of a food.
So you might say that I’m extremely concerned when she’s traveling throughout other countries where there are language barriers, especially because she travels a lot.
When I looked up a translation for this message to warn servers and others of her nut allergy, it wasn’t the easiest to find. Then I found The Swedish Nomad, which included 50 languages to communicate a peanut allergy, so I thought, ‘Why not do the same for tree nuts?’ This information can truly save lives.
Although my reason for doing this was for my own daughter, I’d love for everyone, and anyone who needs it, to also have it.
Please share this post (and this post) with anyone you know who is allergic to tree nuts (or has children) who may be traveling and could use this list of translations. I’ve included a free printable copy below to make it easier to print/share.
DISCLAIMER: Because I am mostly relying on web translations, please know that I cannot be 100% sure that the translations are absolutely correct as I do not speak 50 languages. I did ask some friends for translations so those in BOLD are correct. Please check the countries you will be visiting to make absolutely certain the translation is written as it should be.
