Useful information about the Norwegian language
The Norwegian language belongs to the Indo-European language family and is spoken by about 5 million Norwegians as their native language. There are four varieties of Norwegian, but only two of them have been officially recognised. The "book language" Bokmål, which is mainly based on Danish, and Nynorsk, which is primarily based on rural dialects, are the two officially recognised dialects. Nearly 90% of Norwegians write Bokmål. The State authorities must respond to inquiries in the language in which they were submitted. The local authorities, however, have to answer in the form that has been set as officially valid for their territory. For centuries, Bokmål was also the written language of Norway and was "Norwegianised" in several steps in the first half of the 20th century on the basis of bourgeois vernacular.
Because the three mainland Scandinavian languages are very closely related, Swedes, Danes, and Norwegians can understand each other very well. Publishing houses are therefore considering more frequently whether a book written in Swedish, Danish, or Norwegian should be translated or whether readers in the neighbouring countries will be able to access it anyway. You can find more interesting details about the Norwegian language on Wikipedia.
