Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Regarding which languages to use, I figured this could come in handy:

Languages of the European Union - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Language of the European Union Language   (EU Countries)   As a Mother Tongue
(% of EU Population)   As a language other
than Mother Tongue
(% of EU Population)   Can speak the Language
(% of EU Population)  
English 13% 38% 51%
German 18% 14% 32%
French 12% 14% 26%
Italian 13% 3% 16%
Spanish 9% 6% 15%
Polish 9% 1% 10%
Dutch 5% 1% 6%
Russian n/a 1% 6% 7%
Swedish 2% 1% 3%
Greek 3% 0% 3%
Czech 2% 1% 3%
Portuguese 2% 0% 2%
Hungarian 2% 0% 2%
Slovak 1% 1% 2%
Catalan 1% 1% 2%

(Looks good enough, the column furthest to the right is "can speak language").

From a priority stand-point of having most EUropeans able to understand one of the languages good enough italian, polish and russian looks most important to add. This is not just me being lazy about doing a translation to swedish, I also figure that if we are to have a neat page it is good to limit the number of translations necessary so we don't end up waiting for that elusive translation to Latvian...
