We are sure that you have seen the etymology maps posted occasionally on Facebook showing words translated across Europe.
This great new map from a student at the University of Glasgow allows students of languages to find out the translation of a particular word in every European language. It is addictive, fun and very time-consuming!
We looked up a few words in the interests of research and found that television pretty much follows the same pattern across Europe except in German where it is called Fernsehen. Banana is banane in French but if you translate it to Spanish it becomes plátano.
Here is the link to the European world translator, which we hope helps you in your language learning for the future.
