Icelandic Language

Icelandic is a North Germanic language, the language of Iceland.

Its closest relative is Faroese and Norwegian dialects such as Telemark dialect and Sognamal.

Whilst most West European languages have greatly reduced levels of inflection, particularly in regards to noun declension, Icelandic retains an inflectional grammar comparable to that of Latin or, more closely, Old Norse and Old English.

The main difference between Icelandic and Latin lies in the treatment of the verb.

Nouns, adjectives, pronouns and other word classes are handled in a similar way.

In particular it may be mentioned that Icelandic possesses quite a few instances of oblique cases without any governing word, much like Latin (e.g., many of the various Latin ablatives have a corresponding Icelandic dative).

Icelandic is an Indo-European language belonging to the North Germanic branch of the Germanic languages.

It is the closest living relative of Faroese and along with this and Norwegian it forms the West Scandinavian languages, the descendant of the western dialects of Old Norse.

Danish and Swedish make up the other branch, called the East Scandinavian languages.

More recent analysis divides the North Germanic languages into insular Scandinavian and continental Scandinavian languages, grouping Norwegian with Danish and Swedish based on mutual intelligibility and the fact that Norwegian has been heavily influenced by East Scandinavian (particularly Danish) during the last millennium and has diverged considerably from both Faroese and Icelandic.

Layout designs - Text typically expands or contracts when translating one language to another.

English to Icelandic translations and Icelandic to English translations, will contract or expand depending on the subject matter.

Which Icelandic do you need for your translation?

Getting the Icelandic translation of your documents right can be very tricky.

Clearly there's only one Icelandic language but as in most countries different sections of the population will have different ways of saying things.

Your Account Manager will discuss the target market of your document with you. Clearly if your Icelandic translation is aimed at teenagers it will need to use their phrases and maybe even slang.

Missing these small issues can be the difference between a successful translation and a bad one.
