The EU overhead

With a large number of resident translators approaching retirement age, the EU is as of today actively recruiting translators for some of its 23 languages. While I think this is great news for young (or not so young, such as myself) translators, I do wonder how much effort it takes to keep all these EU documents current, never mind in a current translation.

At the risk of shooting myself in the foot here, I do think that a common European language is highly desirable, necessary and ultimately inevitable.
