Translation is a growing industry with new translation agencies constantly arriving on the scene. Each translation agency is different with its own language and technology strengths. For example, a translation agency may or may not offer Norwegian translation, depending on its business model. Even Norwegian translation agencies differ from one another, with some choosing to supplement Norwegian translation services with Norwegian internationalization, localization, desktop publishing, testing, and globalization consulting services.Norwegian Translation
Norwegian translation agencies provide translations for a wide spectrum of industries, including finance, life sciences, legal, pharmaceutical, telecommunications, information technology, and more. Many Norwegian translation companies provide translation services for three basic media: software and associated components, Web sites, and documentation.
Norwegian Internationalization (I18n) is the process of enabling back-end technologies to function or support Norwegian.
Localization deals primarily with the front-end or linguistic and cosmetic aspects of a software application or Web site, including locale-specific content, cultural correctness, translations, and design. Norwegian translation agencies can adapt a product for Norway by localizing it specifically for those areas.
Norwegian Desktop Publishing
Norwegian document translation refers to the translation of printed materials such as user guides, medical inserts, financial information, and more. Norwegian translation agencies that provide this service are also likely to provide Norwegian desktop publishing, which involves maintaining the formatting specifications of the source documents.
In order to ensure your localized Norwegian Web site or software application is fully functional and completely adapted to target users, a Norwegian translation agency must use experienced Norwegian testers and follow a thorough test plan.
Norwegian Globalization Consulting Services
Some Norwegian translation agencies choose to offer globalization consulting services, which provide consultation and education in areas such as site promotion, target markets analysis, cultural correctness analysis, and more.
