A Map of Europe with Countries Translated into Their Literal Chinese Meaning



This map takes the names of european countries and translates their names letter by letter, with the end results being pretty funny. Here in the UK we can hold our heads high as we are known as 'Braveland' however other countries didn't escape with such cool names.

The map was created by blogger haonowshaokao who told BuzzFeed that he created it for fun and it is a literal translation character-by-character that wouldn't even make sense to those that can understand Chinese. His wife is Chinese and helped him to make the map, and assures that it was created as a fun way to remember the countries of Europe rather than make fun of Chinese people.
