Icelandic translation – a language overview
Icelandic is the de facto language of the Nordic European island country, Iceland. Iceland is the most sparsely populated country in Europe, with only 320,000 inhabitants and native speakers of the language.
Icelandic is most closely related to Faroese, which is an insular Nordic language spoken natively in the Faroe Islands, Denmark and Norway.
Of all the North Germanic languages, Icelandic is the one most commonly related to Old Norse. As such, it is possible for Icelandic speakers to read Old Norse sagas in their original format fairly comfortably.
In 1944 Iceland gained its independence and Icelandic was revived as an official and literary language. Nowadays, the publishing industry in Iceland is really taking off, and native Icelandic speakers are seen by many as the keenest readers and writers on the planet.
