Norwegian Translation Services
If you have Norwegian clients, customers, or employees, you will need Norwegian translation services in order to reach them in their own language. There are close to 5 million speakers of Norwegian in Norway. Although many Norwegian speakers have some facility with English, Web sites, software, and documentation should all be translated into Norwegian for best results in Norway.
Norwegian translation is just one part of a larger process known as Norwegian globalization. Norwegian globalization is the process of adapting your products (software, documentation, and Web sites) functionally, linguistically, and culturally for Norwegian speakers worldwide.
Research by IDC has shown that customers are four times as likely to buy if Web site content is presented in their language. Norwegian translation services for Web sites range from simple (such as a straight HTML-based Norwegian Web site) to complex (such as a dynamic, database-driven Norwegian web application). Your Web site translation company should have the capability to translate text from source files such as HTML/XML, applets, database exports, CGI scripts, Java scripts, graphic files, ASP files, or FLASH files.
Norwegian software translation services, more appropriately called "localization" services, are needed to create an authentic Norwegian software user experience. Online help, menu commands, and installation instructions should be fully translated into Norwegian. Your software translation company should have the ability to deal with programming, scripting, and mark-up languages such as Java, VB and ASP, XML and ASP, C/C++, and Visual Basic.
Norwegian document translation refers to the translation of printed materials such as books, user guides, promotional brochures, and financial information. Different industries generate different kinds of documents such as instruction manuals, packaging, and marketing materials, all of which must be linguistically and aesthetically consistent with the original. Common layout applications include QuarkXpress, FrameMaker, Word, and InDesign, while graphics are often created and edited in Illustrator or PhotoShop.
