Norway has a relatively small economy, and it has a fairly uniform industrial structure throughout the country. Most of the imports and exports are conducted with nearby states, and the European Union accounts for most of the country’s international trade.
While most economic activity is in the geographic area, Norway has increased trade with the USA, so English-Norwegian translations are becoming more critical as Norway expands business with a global market.
All of Norway’s industries have grown over the past 20 years, and in all Norway’s exports have increased over 270% during that time. Specifically, Norway has seen the most significant growth in their petroleum industry which accounts for around 46% of Norway’s export revenues.
Manufacturing and the service industry have also seen a substantial increase in recent years. These industries have increased demand for shipping to and from Norway, so companies looking to work in the Norwegian market need excellent translations to other languages.
A few of the services that we offer businesses looking to reach the global market and tap into the Norwegian economy include:
- Legal translations
- Financial translations
- Technical translations
- Medical translations
- Immigration translations
- Website Translation
- Google Docs Translation
English to Norwegian Translation
The English language is similar to Norwegian in many ways since both have their roots in the broad Germanic language family. Both languages follow a similar sentence structure, and both languages share several words like ski, fjord, and berserk.
However, while both languages share similarities, there are many differences that a Norwegian translator must be aware of. One of the most significant problems experienced is an event called “false friends” where a word looks and sound similar between the languages, but they have different meanings.
Norwegian Language Facts
The Norwegian language is a North Germanic language that has its roots in Old Norse. In the 19th century, Norwegian differentiated itself from Danish during the independence movement in Norway. Due to the history and geographic location, Norwegian is intelligible with Danish and Swedish native speakers.
- Due to the reunion of Denmark, the written language of Norway was Danish from 1500 to 1850.
- When Norway became its own language in 1814, and the population was offered two different forms of the written communication. Instead of choosing one, Norway adopted both types of the language as the official written language.
- The Norwegian alphabet ends with the three letters æ, ø, and å. This means that both the Danish and Norwegian alphabets are precisely the same since both ends in these unique letters.
There are many pockets of populations throughout Norway that are isolated due to the mountainous terrain. This has resulted in many dialects throughout the country, and you should make sure that your translator understands the different dialects throughout the Norwegian countryside.
There are about 5 million native Norwegian speakers around the world, and most of the speakers are located in Norway where it is the official language. Norwegian has two official forms of written language including Bokmål and Nynorsk. While Nynorsk is only spoken by about 10% of Norway’s population, both forms are regulated by the Norwegian Language Council.
