Product Pairing


Written Norwegian and Danish are so similar that on the back of products that has a description in several languages, Norwegian and Danish are usually mixed together, and the few words that a written differently are separated with a “/”. So “I love you” would look like this on the back of a product:

SE (Swedish): Jag älskar dig.
FI (Finnish): Minä rakastan sinua.
DK/NO: Jeg elsker dig/deg.

I’ve never thought about it before, but it was pointed out to me a few weeks ago that DK/NO looks like someone was writing a paring, like Harry/Draco. I haven’t been able to unsee it since. :XD:

"The awkwardness of this realization is just as delicious as I imagined it would be!"

The other day I saw Swedish, Norwegian and Danish mixed on one of those things.
Felt pretty weird, especially since it was actually just Swedish.

Sweden really does enjoy the awkward situations between Denmark and Norway.

I had to do this a lot while I was travelling in Europe. Since I have celiacs so I had to scan everything to find the English words to see if I could eat it. Eventually, I just learned what gluten/wheat was in the respective languages so I could just find that. But basically, Sister America is more or less me when looking at food items in Europe.
