The Romanian site Profit.ro has reported that due to a draft bill prepared by the country’s Parliament, “all electronics, appliances and gadgets sold on the local market must have menu and settings in Romanian, regardless of their country of origin. This will also apply to cars and machinery that have board computers, GPS devices and other electronic interfaces”, Romania Insider reads citing the news web page.
This new measure will not only lawfully protect Romanian consumers “from situations that may occur due to the misuse of these products because of lack of understanding or partial understanding of the settings” but will also be the reason for the opening of many more job post.

As Romania Insider reads in its article, “The warranty certificate, conformity statement, technical book and use instructions will also have to be in Romanian, according to the bill”…. / IBNA
