    OT: Can anyone here speak Norwegian and/or is Norwegian?

    I'm working on a scene for a fanfic set in Oslo, Norway, and the online translators I've found are giving me contrary answers to the same word grouping. Does anyone speak Norwegian well enough to help me out? If so, I'll PM you what I need.

    Back on ARA, there was a member named "Steve Barkin" who was, IIRC, Norwegian, but I don't think we were able to bring him over....

    You're right, 'Chutes. He is Norwegian. I did send him an invitation, but I don't think he ever answered it. I'm not really sure he got it, to be truthful.

    I've watched a few Swedish Chef skits on the old Muppet Show......

    Somehow, I don't think that'll help much...

    Maybe I could help...

    Well, I'm not Norwegian, and I don't live in Norway... but maybe I can help anyway. If it's not a moot point a month later, that is

    I'm living in Denmark, and Danish and Norwegian are actually very similar. I have access to some Nordic translation tools here, so if you'd like, go ahead and send me the thing you want to translate and I'll see if I can get it converted.

    BINKMEISTER!!!

    Wow, you finally found us!

    *Calms down a bit*

    I talked to someone on FF.net, and I think I've got what I needed. Ironically, it was needed for the Shego story I'm writing (the one I've been pestering you about ).

    Glad to have you back with us, Binkmeister!
    It's great to hear from you again! How're you doing? Will you be able to post on a regular basis now?
