Abstract: The paper deal with the impact of translation on a small language (400,000 speakers) brought about by entry into the European Union and the obligation to translate all documents, in a range of subjects, which previously were not written in Maltese. The paper draws on the myth of Babel in the Bible and the Koran, and Umberto Eco's 'The Search for the Perfect Language (1993) for a underpinning discussion on the dream of the perfect universal language.
