Google Translate and Wikipedia are part of an interactive linguistic experiment

When it comes to communication, every traveler understands the importance of learning new words and phrases in a foreign language, because the process offers a better understanding of a country’s culture. Maps can be considered reliable tools to help people visualize different dialects and places all over the world.

Based on this idea, Easy Way Language Center came up with a very interesting linguistic project called Word Map as an interactive way for users to see the relationship between geography and language. Word Map is a new platform which gathers content from Google Translate and Wikipedia to show how spoken words appear around the world.

Users can type any desired word in the Word Map box and see how translations pop up in the browser from English to other languages across various geographical places. Besides that, with the help of zoom feature, users can also visualize a translation word in small countries and learn more information about the history of different languages. From a cultural perspective, this linguistic experiment is a good method for users to teach and navigate through multiple locations.
