Use them for page search to find these particular ones in case you are interested
All links now have the same format - in case something doesn't open or opens wrong, please tell me here or in my stream.
This topic is created to list and categorize articles in Norwegian Immersion.
You will find the list of articles below, but first some general announcements.
To discuss Norwegian Immersion in general or to share your comments and suggestions, please use this thread:
How do I open Norwegian Immersion?
The following works only for people who have Immersion in the A/B test:
- Load Duolingo in the language that naturally has Immersion. This can be any page except Immersion itself.
- Open another Duolingo tab and in this tab (#2) switch language back to Norwegian.
- Now get back to the first tab (tab #1) and - without changing the language! - click on Immersion there. Voila! You will have a list of articles, upvotes/downvotes and all the usual stuff, but for Norwegian.
If you don't have Immersion at all (on the wrong side of A/B test), your only way is to open direct links from below or other people's activity feeds.
Tip 1: If you can't see all articles, make sure that in the "Progress" menu on the right side of Immersion interface you have ticks in all three categories ("Needs to be translated", "Needs to be checked", "Finished") or choose the type of articles you want to focus on.
Tip 2: To get exp points for Norwegian make sure that Norwegian is your selected language when you are doing your translation.
How do I upload an article?
How does this thread work?
In the OP you will find a list of categories. In the comment section below each comment is a category with with links for related articles. Each of them is updated as soon as I spot new articles.
If you uploaded a new article yourself and want to link it straight away, please use respective category - post your comment with the title and the link in the respective thread (and if you don’t want to post anything, don’t worry, it’s not a must).
E.g.: Use "People" if you have an article about a particular Norwegian king. But for an article about Norwegian monarchy in general post your comment in "All Things Norsk", for monarchies of other countries (even if Norwegian royalty is mentioned there) use "Other Countries and Cultures", and for the history or monarchy or comparative analysis use "Historical / Social / Cultural" (again, even if Norwegian royalty is mentioned). The category depends on the actual content of the article.
Tip 3: use page search to quickly find the needed category in the comment section, search for the category name or the word "Update". There are also quite a few not so new articles that are still untranslated fully or partially, they are marked with "§" sign. You can use it for page search as well.
Tip 4: if you want your translation to be noticed sooner, try articles that are in the bottom or under "Update" tag list or closer to the top in the Immersion interface. If you decided to finish an older article and want help or if you need a piece of advice or proofreading, you can always ask someone (i.e. me or other frequenters) to check your article directly in our streams.

I'm spellbound by your talents, cute! Shame on me, but Norwegian (and other Scandi languages) always seemed to me kind of excessive coz all of them are kind of speaking perfect English. But still... there is a lot of hidden charm in it which I clearely understand... especially as someone considering to strat Bulgarian:)))
Just found this site ... the link is for a PICTURE DICTIONARY for the basic nouns, separated into topics like the body or food etc. ! you can also choose other languages.
I was searching for the Norwegian version of "Webster". is there a online Norwegian dictionary with "The Word of the Day"?
I uploaded a few more. One guy at the bottom of this thread requested an upload of an English to Norwegian article about Oslo, https://www.duolingo.com/translation/cf5700e34118ab1b3be7d9d42385681c
And then I uploaded a couple of Norwegian to English articles,
Please update the list accordingly.
Could you help me pls - I'm trying to translate a text about beer, but there's an excerpt that I just can not do because it shows the message 'Translation does not seem correct'. In fact, the sentence in english does not seem to make much sense - But I can be wrong cause I'm not a native speaker... !
This the excerpt that I can't submit
The difference to wine is that with wine, sugars from plants, such as fruit sugar, or that made by animals is used.
In general, all alcoholic drinks where yeast turns sugar into alcohol are called beer. In these cases, distillation is not used. The difference to wine is that with wine, sugars from plants, such as fruit sugar, or that made by animals is used. As an example, mead is a wine made from honey.
I have to agree the sentence is not very clear. What about:
- The difference of wine from beer is that wine uses plant sugars, such as fruit sugars or sugars made by animals.
- Unlike beer, wine uses plant sugars, such as fruit sugars or sugars made by animals.
Can you give a hand with this article about beer - Proofreading ?
They were originally looking at immersion as a means to make money to support the site. They decided that wasn't viable, so they've stopped developing it. But they've left it for the courses which had it, and staff are aware of this hack for other languages and have said they're not interested in stopping it.
Olga used the language code no rather than nb. If you want Norsk Bokmål, you have to use the code nb. The code no is just a generic Norwegian, rather than Bokmål or Nynorsk.
If you are still interested, here is the article:
