His research interests lie in the areas of theoretical linguistics, French syntax, teaching French as a foreign language and translation studies. Jan Roukens works for the Commission of the European Community. He has been involved mainly with Research and Development programmes for information technology and applications. He is now at the DG XIII/E in Luxembourg working on strategy and infrastructure to support language and language diversity in the European Union, with special emphasis on the impact of technological development.
It may be that a fundamental question such as the right of citizens of Europe to access public information in the language of their region could only be settled by regulatory action on the part of the Union, acting in concert with the Member States. This and similar matters should be investigated to establish the most effective and the most acceptable means. Language is internationally understood to be public property, but areas like specialist terminology give rise to potential questions of ownership which the Union needs to decide.
Given the need for transmitting large quantities of information and the wish to preserve the diversity of languages, access by all citizens of the Union to user-friendly and effective translation tools for all European language-pairs will be indispensable.
