The other day I heard about on interesting site called Worldle, which creates word clouds out of any text you enter into it. After creating your word cloud, you can tweak the layout, colour and font settings. Unfortunately it doesn’t seem to handle text in alphabets other than Latin, Greek and Cyrillic. It isn’t really language or writing-related, but is quite fun to play with and you could use it to see which words are most frequently used in a text.

Here are a couple of word clouds I made with text from Omniglot:

Worldle word cloud created using translations of the phrase 'one language is never enough'

This word cloud is made from text in Welsh and Irish from my other blog:

    Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to handle Polish characters 🙁

    Well, I figured out that it depends on the used font… One has to try them all.

  4. Fascinating website. Really enjoyed reading your posts…
