When used by someone in the EU BubbleThe EU Bubble is a term used to indicate a reality distortion generated by the peculiar set of people that inhabit the Brussels' European District. A Bubble resident typically uses sentences like: "We should burst the bubble!", "We need to break silos", "Reach the citizens". The Bubble manifests itself in... this term refers to the 24 official languages of the European Union. Except if the speaker/writer is French, then it just means: “more French”.
A language can only become or cease to be an official EU language if the European CouncilThe Council of the European Union and The European Council have two things in common: the name and the fact that they represent the position of their member state's executive. To avoid confusion, we thought of grouping the two definitions in the same page: understanding by the context to which... takes a unanimous decision to make it so. They could very well decide tomorrow to make High Valyrian, Syldavian or Klingon official EU languages if they so wished.
DG MEME, which is always ready for the future, already started translating to Klingon regulation 1/58 on the official EU languages and citizens’ right to use them when contacting EU institutions. (thanks to F. Malmenbeck for the translation)
