Captioning is the first step before translating

If you produced a video in English that you want to translate into Norwegian, first you should get the captions and then translate into Norwegian and into as many languages as you wish. Captions are specially useful for people with hearing disabilities, and also in noisy places (like airports and train stations) or in places where audio can be a nuisance, like hospitals. Captions are a transcription of the original audio. Some words might be changed and repetitions are deleted to get short and compact sentences.

Customers can then appreciate the narrator’s intonation and expressiveness. This is the way to get the message across with every nuance.

Some facts about the Norwegian language

Norwegian is a North Germanic language with about 5 million speakers, mainly in Norway. There are also some Norwegian speakers in Denmark, Sweden, Germany, the United Kingdom, Spain, Canada and the United States.

The first Norwegian literature, mainly poetry and historical prose, was written in Western Norway and emerged between the 9th and 14th centuries. Later, Norway became to be ruled by Sweden and, later on, by Denmark. Norwegian was still spoken, but Danish was used for official purposes, as a literary and academic language.

After Norway separated from Denmark in 1814, Danish continued to be used in schools until the 1830s, when a movement emerged to create a new national language. The reason for this movement was that written Danish differed so greatly from spoken Norwegian that it was difficult to learn. They also believed that each country should have its own language.

There was much debate about how to create a national language and two languages emerged: the Landsmål (national language), based on colloquial Norwegian and regional dialects, in particular the dialects of Western Norway, and Riksmål (national language), which was mainly a written language very similar to Danish.

The Landsmål was renamed Nynorsk (New Norwegian) in 1929, and Riksmål is now officially known as Bokmål (language of books). Some people over 60 still use Riksmål, which is considered a conservative form of Bokmål and is slightly different.

Today, schools in Norway teach both versions of the language. Students are supposed to learn both, and they can choose which one they want to learn as their main language. Public officials are often familiar with both forms.

For a while there was a movement to create a single standard language that would be called Samnorsk (Norwegian Union). Politicians liked the idea of unifying the Norwegian language, while the others found it a bad idea and a waste of time. The Samnorsk project was officially disregarded on 1 January 2002.
