Clue version 10.7 is launched - what is new?

The content of Clue is developed with input from the Norwegian business sector, language editors and translators.

In this update, more than 10 000 entries have been added, mainly in the language pair Norwegian-English/English-Norwegian.

We have added general language, legal, financial and technical words, as well as interdisciplinary terms, including numerous new entries within financial technology (fintech) and electronic health (e-health).

The interest in artificial intelligence (AI) has also seen a dramatic increase, so we have added a large number of terms within this field.

We would like to thank our many active users for their valuable input and translation questions. We value all the feedback we receive.
