Choice of language
The common contact register contains information about which language you wish to receive public documents and messages in. It is up to the public agencies if they want to use the information about your choice of language.
If you have not made a language choice, the public agencies 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 common contact register or makes changes to it.
The Norwegian Digitalisation Agency has obtained the choice of language from the Norwegian Tax Administration, and moved the information to the common contact register. If you have previously indicated a preference for a language on your tax return, this is the information that is now registered.
