Professional Norwegian translation services
Norwegian is part of the Scandinavian languages that are incredibly similar. Therefore, an inexperienced translator may overlap in using relevant languages. We realize there are freelancing translators. However, professional strategies and criteria are necessary for translating documents into the Norwegian language.
Did you know this about the Norwegian language?
- The Norwegian language is a broad term that umbrellas a few dialects. Bokmål is the official Norwegian dialect, and Nynorsk signals the New Norwegian dialect. High Norwegian is called Hognorsk. The dialects vary from city to city. However, Nynorsk and Bokmål are used in writing the Norwegian language.
- Bokmål and Nynorsk can create complete sentences without loaning words from another language or dialect. These dialects are native to Norwegian because of their use since childhood.
- Nynorsk has a complex grammar compared to Bokmål since it practices three genders; neuter, feminine, and masculine. On the other hand, Bokmål manipulates the masculine and feminine to create a common gender.
- The words in the Norwegian language are very similar to English words. While some are precise, like problem and bank, others are less obvious. These words are av (of) and Velkommen (welcome).
- Since Norwegian sea-travelers settled in Iceland, the two languages are much related. Furthermore, the Danish language also reined Norway and Iceland for some time. Therefore, there is limited Danish influence in the Norwegian language.
- Danish was the written language in Norway from 16th to 19th century. You could consider Bokmål a Norwegian version of the Danish language. However, Nynorsk is the Danish opposite version of the Norwegian language with conflicting dialects and grammar.
- Norwegian is identifiable with its clear tones and accent. A foreign speaker will assume the language as singing due to its tonal attribute. However, it may be challenging to differentiate between homonyms.
- Who doesn’t wish to relax and drink on the weekends? The Norwegians like it so much that they created a specific word—helgefylla. The event officially involves lovingly drinking on weekends and having a laugh with your friends.
- Similar to the Swedish language, there is no word for “please” in the Norwegian language. The language is polite and lyrical, so the absence of “please” has never been noticed. The words automatically change into unnecessary politeness, such as “can you” or “may you.”
