Thousands of volunteers will provide services in up to 55 different languages during the Olympic and Paraolympic Games. The volunteers include retired foreign language experts recruited by the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games volunteer program. Attending fans will receive an information card along with their tickets, offering them important reminders and information. These cards will be available in 45 languages. Also, a call center that will primarily serve non-Chinese athletes and tourists during the Olympics will open in Chaoyang District. Folks who dial 9602008 will be able to access translation and information services in nine languages.
