Like many companies around the world, Norway’s Aftenposten newspaper was hit by the recession. A budget-cutting decision killed its English-language desk online which had included news on the Royal family. For a royal watcher like me, it was very disappointing.
Sure, I tried to continue to read Norwegian royal news via Google translator, but it wasn’t quite the same. Then I discovered that Nina Berglund of Aftenposten Multimedia had created her own site called Views and News from Norway – Norwegian news solely in English.
Ms. Berglund was in charge of the English-language portion of Aftenposten‘s digital presence. When the budget crunch hit Aftenposten in the autumn of 2008, she moved on to create her site.
Many best wishes to Nina, and many thanks for her invaluable translation of Norwegian.
