Maps which has a worldwide reach is one of the most common forms to navigate in a city. It doesn't just show the fastest route to take in the vehicle but also provides transit information and even directions for those who would rather walk. These languages - including Afrikaans, Danish, Filipino, Hebrew, Icelandic, Mongolian, Serbian, Slovak, Swahili, Turkish, and Vietnamese, to name a few - are spoken by around 1.25 billion people.

Google has announced the introduction of 39 new languages to its maps platform - including Afrikaans and Zulu.
