This smaller map removes the countries where Romanian is dominant. This map therefore only shows 7.6% of all speakers of Romanian. The territories omitted are Romania and Republic of Moldova.

Romanian is a Romance language (derived from Latin). It is spoken by roughly 24 million people, in around 25 territories. As well as Romania, it is widely spoken in the Republic of Moldova, and is the official language there (although known as 'Moldovan'). It is also spoken by more than 100,000 people in Ukraine, Israel, Serbia & Montenegro, Greece, Russia, the United States, and Hungary.

Territory size shows the proportion of all people who speak Romanian as a first language that live in that territory.
