Taking into consideration the many local and even international feedbacks and remarks we received regarding our first “Big @-map”, we compiled a new, extended (“bigger, wider and uncut”) version of it. On this new map you can not only find the names of the @-sign in the official languages of the European Union, but in further European languages as well. The sources were Heroidos.com and Wikipedia – of course,besides your comments we got on various European forums.

Calling the @sign “at”, as the English says, is very common and still spreading in many European countries. In our new collection we focused on other, special and locally used versions (if there were any) which are often used and understood by many in a given country besides the English “at”.

We are still open to your comments – hope you like it! :-) (Click on the map for a larger view)
