Norwegian Translation Services
Norwegian originated from the North Germanic language (also called Scandinavian languages) and is spoken natively by over 5 million people. Most of the Norwegian speaking population is concentrated predominantly in Norway where the language has the status of being the official language. Norwegian is mutually intelligible with Danish and Swedish.
The Norwegian language is categorized as a Indo-European language and belongs to the North Germanic segment of Germanic group of languages. Modern Norwegian has two written official forms, which are Bokmål and Nynorsk.
Nynorsk and Bokmål only set standards for written Norwegian and not for how the language is spoken. There is not any official standard of spoken Norwegian, and most natives speak their own dialect of Norwegian under all circumstances. Thus, different to many other countries, all Norwegian dialects, whether they confirm with written norms or not, are accepted as correct form of spoken Norwegian.
