The European Commission approved on Wednesday 24.03.2010 a plan to subsidize with € 12 million dubbing and subtitling of films in Catalan. The plan is in line with European Union rules allowing government aid for the promotion of multilingualism and cultural diversity. According to figures from the Spanish authorities, is doubling every year about 800 films in less than 25 Spanish and Catalan. European institutions have fully supported too the new Catalan government plant to dubbing films in Catalan language. Nowadays about 3 % of the films are in Catalan but the plan tries that half of the films could be dubbed.
Next week there will probably be more good news for the Catalan language in TV.
