"More than one language": for a European policy of translation

The European Union, at least within its provisory borders, authorises the circulation of goods, capital and individuals. The time has come for it to facilitate the circulation of knowledge, culture and works of the imagination, as in the most fertile moments of its history. It is time that Europeans learnt to speak to one another in their own languages. This would contribute to
reconciling them with the European project. And translation has an essential political role to play in the process.
