You could always do it in reverse (this is rather an extension of someone
else's suggestions); have people call you with allergy/problem info before
the feast, and post the info on known problems on a chalkboard or dry-erase
board in/near the kitchen.  (the steward can inform you a change has been
made to the board, if you're distracted.)  Have people who haven't pre-reged
check the board, and add their particular problems.  If the problem is
already listed, they know the dishes that concern them will be labelled,
already. Then you only need to label those dishes/be concerned about those
problems which are on the board; and you can pre-print most of your warning
labels, and thus have less to do feast-day.  And you could add ingredients
as you liked, provided they weren't on the list (or you'd have to add a
warning to the dish in question).

Does that sound good?

P.S.: I assume you mean the chemical preservatives, when you're asking about
unpronounceable ingredients, and not things like Unelmakaaretorttu, Finnish
Torte, and just about anything else in finnish. (Sweetened Potato casserole
looks like Imelletty Perunalaatikko, which looks fairly
unpronounceable....for those languages that need to "buy a vowel," try
Finnish!  They have plenty and a few to spare.)
