Atlas of True Names: The world without the curse of Bable

England...in English

England...in English

Playing around on Stumble upon found me this fantastic link from Der Speigel, the world translated into English. This map gives the image of a peaceful world where people understand each other. Where someone could travel from the land of the long beards to the town of happiness.

The map makers researched global place names to find their origins, and then translated them to English.
