As part of a passion project with my friend Amber, we decided to design a world map where each country would be named according to its own language. We realized that we tend to look at other peoples and cultures through our own biases rather than the viewpoint of others, and those biases can color our perception of them.
We thought it'd be interesting to see how language made its way through our world. The aim is for this to be an interactive site where users can hover over a country to learn more about it and see the country's name in other national languages.
See the spreadsheet of the countries and languages here.
