    Summary
    Publications are considered to be essential for scientific progress, and increasingly they are published in English. Collaborative writing takes place not only for the development of publications within research collaboration, it also runs like a thread through the internal and external communication of research projects. Written internal project communication is less considered within scientific research so far than is external communication. The present article focuses on the internal communication of research projects, dealing with multilingualism and with the aim of pointing to ethical and epistemological difficulties due to the use of English as Lingua Franca.
