Google Translate and Wikipedia Fused into Geo-Linguistic Map
Interactive platform lets users learn about history and pronunciation of spoken word across Earth's terrain
Basic communication relies on one’s innate ability to communicate, and a thoughtful traveler understands the value in learning key words and phrases prior to arriving in a new country. It's the ability to embrace a multitude of communication forms which leads to greater context across situations. When we look at a map from macro to micro, country to town, we can visualize thousands of different dialects. A new digital platform, Word Map, is an interactive linguistic experiment that aggregates content from Google Translate and Wikipedia to illustrate the spoken word around the globe.
