"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


a slight complication

Anybody out there read Swedish and/or Norwegian? I've got a tiny dissertation issue with which I need some translation help. Anybody? Please?

We have a member of our church who is from Norway originally. I'm not sure, but suspect that she speaks Norwegian.

This sounds like a job for the Swedish Bikini Team.

How much translation? I work with some Norwegians and they might be able to do a small favor. Large amounts of translation, though, would not work out.

Thanks, all. Euphrony and/or Gary, I need to know if this: "Pinsevennens Ytre Misjon" means "Norwegian Free Mission." Thanks much!!!

My sources inform me that it means Norwegian Foreign Missions. Ytre means outer or exterior, hence the translation of foreign.

out of curiosity,what is your dissertation topic? i saw that you have some IR links. Is it an IR work? I ask because i am working on my ph.d. in IR as well.

Hey, Michael,

Thanks for the link! IR is my secondary field; my PhD will be primarily in comparative. But I'll take a job in whatever's available!
