Professional and Accurate Localization Solutions
Norwegian is one of the official languages of Norway, and part of the North Germanic languages. With almost 5 million native speakers found around the world, including Norway, Canada, and Sweden, and one of the few tonal languages in the world, Norwegian is an extremely unique language both in the way it is written and spoken, as well as its close historic ties to Norway’s identity. With many different regional dialects, two officially recognized by the government, Norwegian can be particularly difficult to understand and learn for non-native speakers.
Linguistic accuracy, in-depth cultural understanding, subject matter expertise, and localization best practices are all necessary components in ensuring success for any product or service entering the local market. Additionally, high-quality, consistent localization solutions for the Norwegian language requires advanced AI translation technology combined with native, in-country linguists for a quick turnaround time.
The Norwegian language is complex; with two standard versions for writing, and four main dialects divided by different regions, even Norwegians themselves can have difficulty understanding other Norwegians. Norway has two distinct ways to write: Bokmål (literally translated to mean “book tongue”), which stems from Danish roots, and Nynorsk (translated to mean “new Norwegian”), based on various Norwegian dialects. To make matters even more complicated, Norway does not have an official norm for speaking or writing, and accepts both forms, making learning challenging for both students as well as non-native speakers.
Norwegians also understand and appreciate the complexity of their language, actively debating on how it should be written and spoken. Since their language is closely tied with the country’s historical identity as well as how its adapted and changed over time as the nation continues to grow, the importance of understanding both versions, and the contextual situations to use them in as well as other regional dialects when entering Norway’s market is crucial for product success.
