The official language of Iceland is Icelandic and the need for Icelandic translation services is rapidly increasing as the Icelandic economy recovers after the 2008 economic unsettlement. The economy is underpinned by the availability of geothermal power and the fishing industry, but the government has diversified the economy and invested in tourism and manufacturing.

Iceland and its Language
This island nation has been closely related to several countries in the region. The language is descended from Old Norse but has retained many traditional features that other Old Norse languages have lost. The alphabet is Latin script based but has 31 letters and has a lower and upper case.
The Icelandic language has its own words for many modern items and there is an official body that is charged with keeping the language pure. There are historical documents, some of which date back nearly one thousand years, that are written in Old Icelandic.
