European Charter of the regional or minority languages
The European Charte of the regional or minority languages was adopted with the European Convention (ETS 148) of 1992 under the auspices of the the Council of Europe to protect and support the regional historical languages and the languages of the minorities in Europe.
It applies only to Langue S traditionally employed by the nationals of part of a European State (thus, the languages employed by recent the immigrating S coming from non-European States are excluded), when these languages differ significantly from the majority language or the Official language (thus, the local dialects of a majority or official language are excluded) and have a territorial base.
The charter proposes a great number of different actions that the States signatories can undertake to protect and support the regional historical languages and minorities. The latter must undertake at least thirty-five these actions.
The following States ratified the charter compared to the quoted languages:
