Links between Languages

Here is a link to an article about the most 'influential' languages, that is, languages information is most translated into and from.

The diagram included is quite striking.

It is interesting to see how some languages are very strongly linked, and others appear more isolated.

Conceivably you could use this diagram to decide which less common language to learn in order to acquire a useful, possibly lucrative, specialisation.
