The World Loanword Database (via Languagehat)

Reminds me of the thesis that R. Grutman told us about in my autotranslation class: a language's dominance is better measured by the number of people who learn it as a second language rather than native language speakers.

This map shows French in blue and the recipient languages that borrowed from it in red.

Unfortunately, there's no vocabulary for French as a recipient language.
