META-NET is a Network of Excellence, consisting of 47 research centres in 31 countries, dedicated to fostering the technological foundations of a multilingual European information society. A continent-wide effort in Language Technology (LT) research and engineering is needed for realising applications that enable automatic translation, multilingual information and knowledge management and content production across all European languages. The META-NET Language White Paper series "Languages in the European Information Society" reports on the state of each European language with respect to LT and explains the most urgent risks and chances. The series covers all official and several unofficial as well as regional European languages. After a brief introduction of META-NET we will present key results of the 30 Language White Papers which provide valuable insights concerning the technological, research, and also standards-related gaps of a multilingual Europe realised with the help of LT. These insights are an important piece of input for the Strategic Research Agenda for Multilingual Europe which will be finalised by the beginning of 2012.
