Norwegian Language Translation Services

Norwegian is often considered one of the easiest languages to learn, especially for native English speakers. It is the official language of Norway and a member of the Indo-European family of languages, with about five million native speakers. There are two versions of the language spoken today, book language (Bokmål) and New Norwegian (Nynorsk), with New Norwegian spoken most commonly on a day-to-day basis in both the professional setting and at home. Book language is the standard for writing in Norwegian and was originally created as the dialect of the ‘higher class.’

Danish was the standard for writing in Norway until the nineteenth century when book language took over, though it is still considered more of a variety of the Danish language than New Norwegian. Most Norwegians are educated in both languages, though New Norwegian seems to be the more casual of the two. Government and educational systems as well as media outlets are required to use both languages. However, literary publications are where usage of these different languages seem to diverge the most. Nearly 92 percent of publications in Norway use book language, signifying the importance of knowing both languages.

Norwegian is often compared to the Swedish language in terms of pronunciation and grammar structures and some even compare it loosely to English in its written form, as it is not uncommon to be able to easily pick out words with English counterparts. These days Norwegian is heavily influenced by English and North American culture in general, developing Norwegian versions of English words.
