If you love reading, then you are no doubt a connoisseur of words. And, as this infographic shows, one of the great benefits of reading is that it helps to substantially improve your vocabulary. But UK Data Explorer takes vocabulary acquirement to a whole new level with this interactive European translator map. All you need to do is type in a word and the interactive map will show the translation across a variety of European countries.
If you’re someone who enjoys learning new languages or vocabulary in foreign languages, then this is definitely the site for you! And even if you’re not, you’ll enjoy playing around with different words to see how big or small the differences are between varied languages. I tried my luck with the word ‘banana’ and was amused by the results!
