The languages are German, Hungarian, Czech, Polish, Italian, French, English.

I believe it to be made by the same manufacturer as the card shown below, from a website of a card seller in Germany--which, by the way, has a whole lotta Tarot cards listed, as well as oracles, bilingual in German and English, sent to me by Stephan Lange, whose Langustl Tarot is due out in a few months:  http://www.muenzgalerie.de/kataloge/pdfs/tarotkarten_2007.pdf

The deck I have has less refined images, and simplier. However, the printed words appear to be identical in layout and typeface, from what i can see.
