The European Union (EU) has 27 member states and 23 official languages. Each member state, when it joins the Union, stipulates which language or languages it wants to have declared official languages of the EU. The EU policy of official multilingualism as a deliberate tool of government is unique in the world. EU actively promotes the freedom of its peoples to speak and write their own language. The Special Eurobarometer report (237-Wave 63.4.) published in 2005 showed that in the acceding and candidate countries (Bulgaria, Romania, Turkey and Croatia), the proportion of respondents being able to have a conversation in another language than their mother tongue is below the EU average, except in Croatia. In spite of this, there is a gap between the political elite and the citizens of Croatia with regard to the popularity of the European integration process. People are afraid to lose their national identity, language, culture, history or religion when becoming member of the European Union. Wrong interpretations and lack of understanding the difference between Croatian and Serbian language shown by some EU opinion makers increased these fears. The aim of this paper is to present how a multidisciplinary and multi-institutional project focused on the development of Croatian professional language can have positive side effects on overcoming the fear of lose of Croatian language identity and its possible influence on decrease of euroscepticism
