The European pursuit for legal integration and language diversity poses a puzzling question: how can the EU create uniform laws in 24 official languages successfully? This book argues that the answer lies in elevating the English language version, and seeking literalism over fluency in allying the other language versions.

Brian H. Bix, Frederick W. Thomas Professor of Law and Philosophy, University of Minnesota C.J.W. Baaij offers a clear overview of the challenges entailed by multilingual law-making in the EU, and presents and argues persuasively for a novel (and provocative) solution. This is an important text for everyone who works on EU law.

Anne Lise Kjaer, Professor, Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen C.J.W. Baaij addresses a highly topical issue in contemporary research on law and language in the European Union and does so in a convincingly interdisciplinary manner. By highlighting source-oriented translation as the best strategic choice to be made by EU translators, Baaij breaks with the dominant contemporary paradigm within translation studies, which almost exclusively favors target-oriented translation. It is welcome to search for alternative strategies to
cope both practically and theoretically with the conflict between formal EU multilingualism and the equality of all language versions on the one hand and the need for uniform interpretation and application of EU law on the other hand.

Karen McAuliffe, Reader in Law and Birmingham Fellow, University of Birmingham I find this book refreshing, thoroughly innovative, and original. Concisely written, it is a stimulating and important contribution to the current literature on both institutional translation and EU institutions.
