NORWEGIAN TO ENGLISH / ENGLISH TO NORWEGIAN TRANSLATION
Norway has one of the strongest economies in the world – even with a mere population of only 5 million. It is globally known for having the highest living standards, and is fueled by oil and gas exports which not only makes its economy extremely efficient, but also makes it one of the richest countries on the planet.
Norway has a high-level of education, high productivity, and a longstanding culture of innovation. It has very low unemployment rates in comparison to other countries, which also makes it extremely productive and as result, significantly decreases the gap between poor and rich.
These are just a few of the reasons why English to Norwegian translations can be beneficial to your company, as speaking the language to your Norwegian business partners can greatly improve your chances for effective communication and successful relationships. More specifically, translating documents such as websites, catalogs, product specifications, and localizing your company’s social media channels, etc. can all prove to be advantageous in the business world.
On the other hand, over 1.6 billion people in the world currently speak English as both a native or an additional language, accounting for approximately 20% of the Earth’s population. Therefore, with regards to business, English has rapidly become the dominant language and it has almost become a necessity for people to be able to speak English if they are to enter a global workforce successfully – highlighting the significance of Norwegian to English translations.
In order to translate from Norwegian to English or English to Norwegian effectively, the translator must be well trained and familiar with the nuances and meanings of both languages. HI-COM works hard to adapt all texts according to the target language and culture, in order to successfully translate the intended meaning and to ensure that there is no room for miscommunication. To ensure the highest quality of a translation, HI-COM only uses experienced and certified Norwegian/English translators.

HI-COM TRANSLATION EXPERIENCE
The Norwegian language is the most widely spoken language in Norway with over 95% of its population speaking the North Germanic language. Whilst the other most-spoken language in Norway with over 4,300,000 speakers, is English.
The Norwegian language is closely related to Swedish and Danish, and descends from Old Norse – a language spoken throughout Scandinavia from the 9th to the 13th century. Due to its language history, Norwegian speakers are also able to recognise words in Icelandic and Faroese, as they too, are languages that derive from Old Norse.
According to Radiolingua, those who can speak Norwegian are far more likely to be able to understand Swedish and Danish as there are multiple linguistic similarities. For example, written Norwegian is based on written Danish, meaning that Norwegians are able to understand written Danish easily too.
According to Babbel, Scandinavia originally spoke Old Norse exclusively, but soon the language started dispersing in various regions, and early versions of Danish, Swedish and Norwegian began forming.
In order to accurately translate texts from English to Norwegian, translators need to be aware of the numerous cultural and dialect differences, as the dialect changes depending on where you are in Norway.
For example, there’s not actually a “standardized” Norwegian language as such, because dialects are divided geographically into four main groups: Vestlandsk (Western Norwegian), Østlandsk or Østnorsk (Eastern Norwegian), Trøndersk (Central Norwegian) and Nordnorsk (Northern Norwegian). Each of those regions then have their own sub-groups dependent on the area. Therefore, it’s safe to assume that most villages or towns in Norway have their own unique dialect.
Which is why, unlike any other agency, HI-COM will consider all relevant terminology and language nuances to ensure that your translation is effectively adapted to both your target audience and the needs of your business.
