Who speaks Faroese?
There are only 80 thousand people who speak Faroese. For the vast majority of them, this is their native language. Faroese belongs to the group of the Germanic languages constituting part of a large family of the Indo-European languages. The Faroese language will be useful basically only in the Faeroe Islands, where the vast majority of its users live. Since 1948, Faroese is the official language of the Faeroe Islands. In addition, it is also used by a few percent of Denmark’s population.
History of the Faroese language
The history of Faroese began around the 9th century AD. At that time, Germanic tribes started to migrate to the Faeroe Islands. About 900, the main language in the Faeroe Islands was Old Norse, which was used by the Scandinavian settlers. However, some of them did not come from Scandinavia, but were the descendants of settlers from the region of the Irish Sea. It means that the Irish language had an influence on the development of the Faroese language. Between the 9th and the 15th century, a separate Faroese language evolved, although it was probably still comprehensible to people using Old Norse and remained similar to the Norn language. In the period between the 14th and the 17th century, Faroese was mostly used orally – songs with mythological motives. In 1906, Faroese gained the status equal to Danish, and since 1939 it has been the only language taught in schools and used in the Faroese Parliament.
Use of the Faroese language in business
Due to a small number of users, Faroese will be helpful in conducting business activities only in the Faeroe Islands and Denmark. If you are interested in the expansion of business to the Faeroe Islands, it is extremely important to take care of professional translations of all corporate materials into Faroese.
