How "international" is your word?

Foreword
(When some word is printed in italics it can pop-up an explanation.)

There are two ways in which you can take advantage of the translation service of
Google Translate,
- One that shows the translations of the source word, chosen by you in the language chosen by you, in each of the target languages, thereby offering three possible conclusions: similar to the source word, not similar, not relevant.
This version enables you to determine the degree of internationality in two phases: on the european scale, on a world scale.

- Another one in which you yourself create a classification of all possible translations, grouped according to internal similarity eg 'bridge' with classes p[o|ue]nt(e) (romance languages), br[u|i][g|ĝ|ck](e) (ghermanic languages), p[a|u]la(m) (Hindi, Gugharati) etc., up to a maximum of six classes, the last being 'restklaso'.

Both programs result in a table indicating to which class/category each language belongs and with percentages for each class.
Make your choice between the programs with: A. three categories according to similarity to your source word
B. classification of translations in groups with internal similarity
