Can someone check the page and make corrections? It was recently changed and the infobox is broken now. Pelmeen10 (talk) 20:23, 5 April 2020 (UTC)

Norway heritage RSN postEdit

Name of Norsk Flygerforbund in English?Edit

As I understand, the literal translation would be the Norwegian Pilots' Union; while a more precise rendering would be Norwegian Airline Pilots' Union. However, in their own literature they refer to themselves as The Cockpit Association of Norway. Their membership in the international pilots' federation is shown as Norwegian Air Line Pilots Association. My sense would be to go with the most precise and closest to the Norwegian − which would be Norwegian Airline Pilots' Union...but comments appreciated. Thank you,--Goldsztajn (talk) 07:11, 22 May 2020 (UTC)

Help with Norwegian souresEdit

I would be most grateful if an English-Norwegian bi-lingual editor could take a look at the article Owen Wilkes and expand the coverage of his Norwegian experiences based on the Norwegian sources. There are many sources in English which all appear to use suspiciously similar phrasing. There are a number of apparently relevant sources in Wilkes/Gleditsch_trial.

Couldn't find much information about the man himself, apart from a lengthy obituary in Klassekampen. Whilst an interesting read, it was written by Nils Petter Gleditsch, so it's hardly NPOV. decltype (talk) 08:33, 23 June 2020 (UTC)


I am trying to create an article for the band Fieh. While there are a few English sources I could use, I was hoping that someone could help be find some good Norwegian sources with sig cov of the band. I also have some potential sources that I could use over at the draft page I created. If anyone here has a subscription for Dagens Næringsliv, Dagsavisen, or Aftenposten, that would be super helpful. Thanks in advance!  Bait30  Talk 2 me pls? 04:20, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

x-number immigrants (from country "A"), plus y-number persons born in Norway with both parents being immigrants (from country "A")Edit

"Number of minorities (1st and 2nd generation) in Drammen by country of origin".

That section title seems to be poor English, but that text can probably be understood by those who are familiar with the term "Første- og andregenerasjons invandrer".

"Immigrants and Norwegian-born to immigrant parents", might be a better title for the section. Suggestions for improving the title of the section? (More than one article needs a rework in regard to the subject of this thread.) Regards! (talk) 21:44, 16 October 2020 (UTC)

Hjelmsgate 3Edit

Hi WP:NORWAY, I recently created an article for Hjelmsgate 3 in Oslo and I was wondering how best to describe it (never visited it in the flesh). I started off calling Hjelmsgate a cultural centre but on reflection if its run by the Stiftelsen Arbeidskollektivet then I suppose it is self-managed. An example of a cultural centre would (I think) be something like Vega Scene, a self-managed social centre would be Hausmania. A less specific term would be social centre (which on EN redirects to community centre). Thanks for any help! Mujinga (talk) 14:45, 14 February 2021 (UTC)
