This preserves the language by being  taught in schools as well as, used in legal documentation and records.

Language Translating…

Before you leave on your adventure, learn some common phrases for the language of the country you will be visiting. Locals appreciate when you make a little effort to communicate in their native language. Not to worry though, many Europeans speak english well. Other than English, the main languages spoken across many western European boarders are French, Spanish, German and Italian.

In those old eastern block communist countries, Russian has a high recognition. Belarusian, Bulgarian, Macedonian, Russian, Serbian, Ukrainian all use the Cryllic alphabet and the Greek alphabet is used in Greece. Unless you can read those alphabets the translator may not be of much help. However, even in those countries major signage can also be labeled with the latin alphabet and sometimes in English.
