Does what3words translate between languages?


No, our system works a little differently.

For each language what3words is available in, the words have been assigned independently – they are not translations. For example, the 3 metre square ///filled.count.soap in our English version is ///conduite.richissime.empâter in our French map (which translates as ‘conduct’, ‘rich’ and ‘paste’).
