The EU speaks your language - Virtual version

An exhibition on multilingualism and the importance of translation

This page is also available in

Created in 2018, this in-house exhibition is a tribute to the EU fundamental values of democratic legitimisation and multilingualism and focuses on Regulation 1/1958, which determined the languages to be used by the EU institutions and set out the language arrangements applicable to them.

Regulation 1/1958 has played a key role in European integration: allowing work to be carried out in each of the Member States' languages has increased civil society participation as well as the EU's democratic legitimacy.

"The EU speaks your language" was designed and created by the EESC to be a touring exhibition and has so far been staged in five locations. This year it is completely online.

The exhibition is organised in cooperation with the Directorate for Translation.
