Have you ever wondered about what some of the official languages of the United Nations are? What makes them official, what criteria is used to make them the official languages, and so on?

Another question to be asked is this one: What qualifications does the United Nations seek when choosing language professionals to work for them? Is there a specified quota for each member of the UN?
So many questions to be answered but I am sure that the UN’s website has some very important answers for us all. I recently found the reference below and I urge you to read on if you would like to know more.
