Klaus Regling, Director General for Economic and Financial Affairs of the European Commission: Response to the Open Letter to the Minister, 2002-04-12

Dear Mr Everson
The Commissioner Mr Pedro Solbes, wishes to thank you for your letter dated 22 March 2002, concerning the use of the word euro and its possible variations in the plural form.
EU legislation is drafted and published by the Council in all linguistic versions. You rightly state in your letter that in EU legislation, the plurals of both "euro" and "cent" are written without an "s" in English, but that the Secretariat General of the Commission has issued a guideline recommending its translators to use the plural with "s" for both terms in documents other than legal texts.
I hope to have clarified the issue from the Commission's point of view.
Yours sincerely,
[signed] Klaus Regling
Director General
