Official languages[edit] The official languages of the Latin Union were Catalan, French, Italian, Portuguese, Romanian, and Spanish. French, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish are used as working languages. All the texts of general diffusion were translated into these four languages, with some also going into Romanian and Catalan.

Organization[edit] The Union was composed of three main bodies, namely, the Congress, the Executive Council, and the General Secretariat. Congress[edit] The Congress, which consisted of the representatives of all the Member States, met in ordinary assembly every two years. Its main functions were to adopt the budget, to define the general direction of the Union, to receive the new Member States formally, and to elect and appoint different Member States to be the Presidents, Vice-Presidents, and members of the sub-organisations of the Union. A President and two Vice-Presidents were also elected by the Congress. Oleg Serebrian from the Republic of Moldova was the last President. There were also two auxiliary bodies of the Congress, namely, the Commission of Adhesions and the Commission of Candidacies. The Commission of Adhesions was composed of 10 Member States and was responsible for promoting the adherence of all the Member States of the Union. The Commission of Candidacies was composed of 9 Member States and was responsible for examining the validity of the candidacies, taking account of the geographical and linguistic-cultural division. Executive Council[edit] The Executive Council was the executive branch of the Union. It consisted of 12 Member States, which were elected by the Congress every four years, and led by a President and two Vice-Presidents, which were also elected by the Congress. There were also two auxiliary commissions sub-ordinated to the Executive Council: The Commission of Finance and Programmes The Commission of Statues General Secretariat[edit] The Latin Union was directed by a Secretary-General appointed every four years by the Congress. The Secretary was in charge of the execution of the programmes and implemented the decisions made by the Congress and the Executive Council in the matter of budget and general direction. Jose Luis Dicenta Ballester was at one time Secretary-General of the Union. Subordinated to the Secretary-General, there were 4 directors: Director of Administration and Finance Director of Culture and Communication Director of Promotion and Education of the Languages Director of Terminology and Industry of the Language Finance[edit] The finance of the Union was mainly supported by the obligatory contributions from the Member States. For some activities, the Union may have collaborated with other public or private institutions.
