@saab,
However, only 27 European countries are members of the EU.

The Language Service of the Council General Secretariat just has about 700 translators in the Language Service, with a support staff of more than 350 officials and other staff.

Directorate-General for Translation [DG Translation] has a permanent staff of around 2 500 people, according to their website.
Additionally, there's DG-Interpretation, with 500 staff interpreters, 300 - 400 freelance interpreters per day (out of 2.700 accredited freelance interpreters).

@izzythepush,
Dear izzythepush, you're wrong. Kosovo is a part of Serbia.

@LuckyLuke,
According to the Serbs in the north. It's independence is in dispute.

Quote:
The Assembly of Kosovo, then a province of Serbia under transitional UN administration (UNMIK), approved a declaration of independence on 17 February 2008. Kosovo was soon recognized as a Sovereign state by the United States, Turkey, Albania, Austria, Germany, Italy, France, the United Kingdom, the Republic of China (Taiwan), and others. This triggered an international debate over whether Kosovo's independence has set a precedent that could apply to other separatist movements or is a special case. The recognition of Kosovo's independence by 89 out of 193 UN states, according to many sources, has given fresh impetus to other separatist movements.Abkhazia and South Ossetia renewed their calls for the recognition of their sovereignty. Kosovo's independence also led to increased tensions in Bosnia-Herzegovina, where the Republika Srpska vetoed recognising Kosovo, and threatened to declare independence themselves.
