English to Norwegian Translation Projects
We assist organizations with documentation or marketing material (e.g. brochures, manuals, website content, PowerPoint presentations, product labeling, etc.) that are written in Norwegian and require accurate translation into English.
Of course, in addition to English to Norwegian and Norwegian to English translation assignments, we can also assist you with the translation of the world's most popular languages to and from Norwegian: Arabic ↔ Norwegian; Spanish ↔ Norwegian; French ↔ Norwegian; German ↔ Norwegian; Italian ↔ Norwegian; Portuguese ↔ Norwegian; Russian ↔ Norwegian; Japanese ↔ Norwegian; Chinese ↔ Norwegian; Hindi ↔ Norwegian; to name but the most popular... We can source translation expertise for virtually any language pair.
Norwegian Language Style
Our translators, editors and proofreaders render well-written and clearly understandable texts. We place a high value on rendering a finished product that is faithful to the language style of the original text.
Norwegian to English Translation Projects
We assist businesses in finding the best available Norwegian to English language translation resources – including experienced Norwegian language translators (native-speaking Norwegian if appropriate or required).
In our experience, a Norwegian language native-speaker may not necessarily be the right translator for the job. (See: Common myths and misconceptions about translation.) Though a native-speaker may be preferable for certain translation assignments, having Norwegian as a native language may not 'translate into' Norwegian language expertise (pun intended). An experienced linguist with strong Norwegian and English language translation credentials, in-depth experience and professional credentials, regardless of native language, may often prove to be a better choice.
Identifying and securing the services of the appropriate Norwegian language resources is what we do! (Refer to our Norwegian translation assignment process for information on our Norwegian translation project management process).
In a nutshell, we use professional translators who have a solid mastery of the Norwegian language (grammar, spelling, cultural nuances) and a solid understanding of the subject matter.
Once we are confident that the appropriate freelance resources have been identified and certain that we can honour the project deadline, we submit a quote for the translation assignment.
If we cannot secure the appropriate resources, we will do our best to refer you to Norwegian translation sources of information that we have confidence in.

Norwegian (Norsk) is a North Germanic language spoken primarily in Norway, where it is an official language. Together with Swedish and Danish, Norwegian forms a continuum of more or less mutually intelligible local and regional variants.
These continental Scandinavian languages together with the insular languages Faroese and Icelandic, as well as some extinct languages, constitute the North Germanic languages (also called Scandinavian languages). Faroese and Icelandic are no longer mutually intelligible with Norwegian in their spoken form, because continental Scandinavian has diverged from them.
As established by law and governmental policy, there are two official forms of written Norwegian — Bokmål (literally "book language") and Nynorsk (literally "new Norwegian"). The Norwegian Language Council recommends the terms "Norwegian Bokmål" and "Norwegian Nynorsk" in English.
There is no officially sanctioned standard of spoken Norwegian, but the sociolect of the urban upper and middle class in East Norway, upon which Bokmål is primarily based, is the form generally taught to foreign students. This so-called Standard Østnorsk (Standard East Norwegian) can be regarded as a de facto spoken standard for Bokmål.
