English to Norwegian Translation Services
Norwegian, the official language of Norway, is the mother tongue of around 95% of its wealthy population of 5.3 million. Norwegian is quite similar to Swedish and Danish: In written form, it is more similar to Danish, whereas in spoken form, it bears more similarities to Swedish. Thus, translating your product information, academic papers, or creative work into Norwegian is like hitting two birds with one stone—three birds, actually. Among the three languages, Norwegian is the most profitable, as Danes, Swedes, and Norwegians will understand your translation.
Another fascinating feature of Norwegian is that it actually has two nationally recognized dialects. One is Nynorsk or Norsk, which means “new Norwegian,” and the other is Bokmål, which means “book language.” Which one is best for your business, career, or personal needs is something the professional English to Norwegian translators at TranslationServices.com will know.
More important, a great Norwegian translator will be aware of the law of Jante, or Janteloven. In Scandinavian countries like Norway, this is like the Golden Rule. It basically says, “You are no better than we are,” and this egalitarian philosophy bleeds into their communication style. Thus, your translator must be able to not only find accurate Norwegian equivalent terms but also come up with translations that are culturally appropriate for a Norwegian audience—straightforward yet polite.
