MapBox, a service used to design and publish custom maps, has announced that Le Monde, one of France’s largest newspapers, has unveiled a brand new paid website and used MapBox’s interactive maps.

Powered by its OpenStreetMaps technology, this is the first international partnership for the company. But before you start to wonder what the big deal is about why there’s a map on a website, think about this: Le Monde used MapBox to turn the entire world French. By doing this, the French newspaper has implemented a service that will feature its news on a map familiar to its readers.
