Faroe Is­lands

First News - - World News -

The tiny Faroe Is­lands, sit­u­ated be­tween Ice­land, Nor­way and the UK, have started their own on­line trans­la­tion ser­vice. Google Trans­late doesn’t in­clude the na­tive lan­guage, Faroese, so they’re trans­lat­ing it them­selves! Tourists who want to know how to say some­thing in Faroese can put in a re­quest for a trans­la­tion, and a volunteer on the is­land will re­spond with a short video of them say­ing it, (nearly) in­stantly! Faroese comes from Old Norse and is spo­ken by around 66,000 peo­ple.
