At Equal Eats, we take the accuracy of our allergy translation cards very seriously. To guarantee their reliability, each card undergoes a meticulous three-step process: professional translation, expert proofreading, and evaluation by a native speaker. This rigorous approach ensures the utmost precision in conveying critical allergy information.
This process started well in advance of our cards ever being publicly available. After a thorough design thinking process where we consulted with nearly 2,000 stakeholders we finalized the content of our cards. At this stage we embarked on a 3-tiered process to ensure the accuracy of all translations. This includes:
Translations performed by professional translators
Proofreading performed by professional proofreaders
Final review performed by native speakers
We use a top-of-the-line plastic card printer to make our dietary cards. Our research told us that restaurant staff take a diner's request most seriously when presented in a professional manner.
We don't offer laminated cards for this reason and believe that when you take your dietary restrictions seriously, others will too.
Our team creates every single card in-house to ensure it meets our quality control objectives. This includes:
- Design and layout of cards and information
- Ensuring the correct translations (language and allergen) are used
- Overall print quality
Our team "gets" it because we are affected by food allergy, celiac disease and EoE together.
We use the cards for ourselves and our families, and are happy to provide them to you and your loved ones. We recognize the responsibility and take our process very seriously to ensure we provide superior products that will help you enjoy food with greater peace of mind.
If you have any questions about our process, or would like to assist as a native speaker reviewer for upcoming updates, we'd love to hear from you!
