Written test where I had to re write an text from English to Norwegian.

1 Answers

I re wrote the text from English to Norwegian x 3 and only got 10 minutes to re write the real text. Text in Norwegian was proof read by an Swedish team leader, and clearly the Swedish team leader does not have 15 years of Norwegian written and spoken languages both Bokmål and Nynorsk in school in Sweden, therefor google translate was used as well, and that is not very comparable to what the Norwegian Language is about.

I was able to do that easily, as I'm obsessed with mastering English and spend almost all of my free time studying the structure of the language. The other questions were also easy for me-- obsession with your subject and passion for your job will get you through anything. Less
