The cards are double-sided with text in English and a translation of one of the thirteen languages. The languages include Arabic, Bosnian, Burmese, French, Hakha, Karen, Karenni, Nepali, Somali, Spanish, Swahili, Vietnamese and Zomi. The cards contain important telephone numbers and information that facilitate access to city services.
