It is the European Day of languages. Celebrate it with us!
At the initiative of the Council of Europe, Strasbourg, the European Day of Languages has been celebrated on 26 September every year since 2001. Europe is rich in languages - there are over 200 European languages and many more spoken by citizens whose family origin is from other continents. This is an important resource to be recognised, used and cherished.
Multilingualism is fundamental for the European Union and one of EU-OSHA’s main drivers as a recognised leader in promoting safe and healthy workplaces in Europe. On 30 March 2017, three agencies - the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA), the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) and the Translation Centre for the Bodies of the European Union (CdT) - received the European Ombudsman Award for Good Administration in the category of Excellence in citizen/customer focused services delivery for a jointly developed innovative project to facilitate the translation management of multilingual websites.
