Norwegian (Norsk) is a North Germanic language spoken mainly in Norway, where it is the official language. Along with Swedish and Danish, Norwegian forms a dialect continuum of more or less mutually intelligible local and regional variants.
As established by law and governmental policy, the two official forms of written Norwegian are Bokmal (literally “book tongue”) and Nynorsk (literally “new Norwegian”). The official Norwegian Language Council (Sprakradet) is responsible for regulating the two forms and recommends the terms “Norwegian Bokmal” and “Norwegian Nynorsk” in English. Two other written forms without official status also exist, one, called Riksmal (“national language”), is today to a large extent the same language as Bokmal though somewhat closer to the Danish language. It is regulated by the unofficial Norwegian Academy, which translates the name as “Standard Norwegian”. The other is Hagnorsk (“High Norwegian”), a more purist form of Nynorsk, which maintains the language in an original form as given by Ivar Aasen and rejects most of the reforms from the 20th century; this form has limited use.
Nynorsk and Bokmal provide standards for how to write Norwegian, but not for how to speak the language. No standard of spoken Norwegian is officially sanctioned, and most Norwegians speak their own dialects in all circumstances. Thus, unlike in many other countries, the use of any Norwegian dialect, whether it coincides with the written norms or not, is accepted as correct spoken Norwegian. However, in areas where East Norwegian dialects are used, a tendency exists to accept a de facto spoken standard for this particular regional dialect, Urban East Norwegian or Standard East Norwegian (Norwegian: Standard Aostnorsk), in which the vocabulary coincides with Bokmal. Outside Eastern Norway, this spoken variation is not used.
Norwegians are educated in both Bokmal and Nynorsk. A 2005 poll indicates that 86.3% use primarily Bokmal as their daily written language, 5.5% use both Bokmal and Nynorsk and 7.5% use primarily Nynorsk. Thus, 13% are frequently writing Nynorsk, though the majority speak dialects that resemble Nynorsk more closely than Bokmal. Broadly speaking, Nynorsk writing is widespread in western Norway, though not in major urban areas, and also in the upper parts of mountain valleys in the southern and eastern parts of Norway.
Norwegian is one of the working languages of the Nordic Council. Under the Nordic Language Convention, citizens of the Nordic countries who speak Norwegian have the opportunity to use their native language when interacting with official bodies in other Nordic countries without being liable to any interpretation or translation costs. All of this points to why companies should translate into Norwegian.
We have Norwegian language experts in specific areas like Technical, Non-Technical, Legal, Retail, Advertising/Marketing, Life-Science, Financials among others.
