Map translations

I just noticed today that on the
TFL map site, they've added 'Translated versions of tube map'. For one moment, I got all excited thinking that all the station names would appear in foreign languages too, before realising that "Oxford Circus" is still "Oxford Circus" whether you're English, French or Arabic!

But other bits of the map have been translated, and they're quite novel to look at, here's a bit of the Arabic one.





They're doing them in Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, Greek, Gujurati, French, Hindi, Punjabi, Urdu, Turkish, Vietnamese and Spanish.
