    This article gives an overview of current trends in European language policies regarding the status of the official EU-languages and with a view to language technology. The article is based on data collected for the European Language Monitor (ELM) provided by EFNIL – the European Federation of National Institutions for Language – and on recent experiences with the development of the national Danish strategies for artificial intelligence and language technology. The aim is to describe the wealth of information about European language policies that is available through EFNIL and ELM, and to inspire researchers, students and policy makers to further analyse the data and use them for future policy development.
