Translation Service - Norwegian

Recommended Posts

I am engaged to a Thai woman.  She was divorced in Norway and in order to get a single certificate we need to get a copy of her divorce decree translated.  Does anyone know a translation service for Norwegian?

I imagine any translation will also need to be certified by the Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Bangkok. Maybe start with the translators that operate in and around the MFA. There is a Norwegian Consulate in Jomtien, local translators would probably deal in Norweigan.

Maybe state where you or fiancée are located for local recommendations.

We called the Norwegian consulate in Pattaya and the Norwegian Embassy in Bangkok.  They say they can not give recommendations.  We only asked for options.  We have called all of the Translations services in Bangkok that were listed on the U.S. embassy site in Bangkok.  None translate Norwegian. So we can find plenty of translation services.  But none so far that translate from Norwegian.

Tried that.  Even called the embassy.  So far no one does Norwegian.  There must be someone obviously

I would be surprise if there are not Thai /Norwegian translation services available in Norway itself.  I know the posting bit is a pain but you may get a better service. Try google and see if anyone advertises such a service in Norway.

I am guessing that you are right.  I was just wondering about getting a document not translated in Thailand legalized by Thailand.

I may be wrong, but I think you maybe can get them translated in Norway and then legalised at the Thai Embassy in Oslo? Certainly, the Thai Embassy in London used to offer that service.  Worth a try.

I see, sorry.

Before there were several in soi 33, but very few hand in visa applications directly to the Embassy now.

 

They now have a visa centre further down Sukhumvit somewhere.

I would guess that close to where most people hand in their applications,

there should be translators to be found.

sorry, I'm probably not making myself clear.  My suggestion was that any documents that you have here in Thailand that need to be translated and then legalised could be sent to a service provider in Norway who can do the job for you there.  There are many such agents doing that job in the UK, so maybe in Norway also.  Sorry if I wasn't too clear.

The US Embassy provides a list of translation service companies to assist its citizens.  The Norwegian Embassy would not even say if their were any Norwegian translation services available in Thailand.  They only commented they were difficult to find.  No Crap.

it is  far far outside the raison d'etre of any Norwegian government service

to recommend private companies, they just cannot do that, that would be gross breach

of proper behaviour for government services

 

it doesn't take much fantasy to understand that there are Norwegian-Thai translation services available

in Thailand

 

my best guess  would be to look around where people deliver visa applications,

possibly ask some Norwegians

 

alternatively, consult one of the Norwegian www forums
