Language guide for European business: successful communication in your international trade is a 2011 publication by the European Union.
This guide is about solving your company’s language and communication problems. It offers your company advice on how to deal with the language and cultural issues that arise every day in international business. It will help you develop a strategy for dealing with communication problems in new or expanding markets in other countries.

GeoFred is a map app that allows you to create, customize and share geographical map data found at the Federal Reserve.
For fun, I created the above map using population data from 2010, for all countries available. You can then download your map as a GIF, a PDF, or a JPEG (you can also add your data to a spreadsheet).
Map tools include: choosing your colour scheme, edit legend, edit labels.
