Our translators are up to date on modern changes to the Icelandic language.


Since the late eighteenth century, writers and linguists have been intent on preserving the structure of the Icelandic language by getting rid of foreign loanwords and creating new words to represent new concepts. Thus, it isn’t surprising to find fairly recent Icelandic words for modern and technical terms, such as rafmagn (electricity), simi (telephone), and tӧlva (computer). Our translators keep abreast of all the modern changes to Icelandic so our clients’ English to Icelandic translations are superb.
