Choice of language
The common contact register contains information about which language or language variant you wish to receive documents and messages from the state and municipality in.
Difi has obtained the language selections from the National Register administered by the Norwegian Tax Administration and moved the information to the common contact register If you have previously indicated a preference for a language or language variant on your tax return, this is the information that is now registered.
It is up to the public entity that sending you messages or documents to use the language selection information. It will therefore take time before everything that is sent to you arrives in your desired language or language variant.
If you have not made a language choice, the state or local government can choose which language or language variant they will use in their communication with you.
It is you, as a citizen who adds the contact information to the contact register or makes changes to it.
