English to Norwegian Translation

Many people assume English to Norwegian translation is a relatively simple task. English and Norwegian are Germanic languages, so the two have significant similarities in grammar and vocabulary. Word order follows the Subject–Verb–Object structure in both languages, for example. Their vocabularies are also remarkably similar, as many English words have been borrowed from Norwegian. Ski, iceberg, and krill are three typical examples.

Despite these similarities, considerable differences make high-quality Norwegian translation services challenging to master. For example, possessive pronouns can be placed before or after the noun in a sentence, and possessive apostrophes are not used. Subject–Verb agreement errors are also common in Norwegian to English translation projects and vice versa. These are only subtle discrepancies but distinguish between a skilled and sloppy translation.
In addition, the similarities themselves pose more challenges for translators. The overlapping vocabularies are highly useful, but there are many “false friends” – words that are spelt the same in English and Norwegian but have entirely different meanings. For example, this includes words like bra (good), hell (good luck), love (promise), and travel (busy). Using these words assuming they carry the English meaning results in loss of context and, in worst cases, incomprehensible text. Trust our professional English to Norwegian translation services for the best results.

Norwegian Translation Tips & Insights

Our English to Norwegian translators are experts in accurately translating documents that connect, engage, and inspire. Here they provide two must-know tips you can use for your next translation project to ensure your copy has the same effect.

Choose the Correct Written Form

There are two distinct written varieties of the Norwegian language: Bokmål and Nynorsk. Around 90% of the Norwegian population uses Bokmål, so this system is used for most Norwegian translation services. However, Nynorsk is more common in Western Norway. Therefore, ensure you define your target audience and choose the most appropriate dialect. Both varieties are linguistically very similar, but paying attention to the subtle differences makes for a more compelling translation.

Avoid Machine Translations

Regardless of your target language, we always recommend human translators over machine translations. Yet this is even more crucial when you do an English to Norwegian translation! The Norwegian vocabulary contains many unique or highly compounded words and phrases that have no direct translation into English. Human Norwegian translators can unpick and decipher these phrases, whereas meaning could be misconstrued when relying on machines. At Renaissance translations, high-quality Norwegian translation is always guaranteed.

Norwegian Language Facts

  • There are approximately 5 million Norwegian speakers across the globe. These speakers predominantly live in Norway, where Norwegian is also the official language.
  • Norwegian is one of the only tonal Indo-European languages – tonal languages are rarely seen outside of Asian languages.
  • Many words in the Norwegian vocabulary are also incredibly long! One example is fylkestrafikksikkerhetsutvalgssekretariatslederfunksjonene, which is 58 letters long and refers to the role of a committee leader.
  • Finally, there is a significant overlap in the English and Norwegian vocabularies. In other words, the words problem, finger, ski, over, under, and glass are all present in both languages.
