basenordic AS was established in 2016 with the idea of providing a unique combination of language courses, translations and interpretations with IT consultancy services.

We have established Norwegian courses for Czechs and Slovaks living in Oslo and surroundings, where the teaching happens in Czech or Slovak.  In addition, we provide various translation services.  Our core language focus is on the Norwegian, Czech, German and English languages.

Our teacher, Lenka Sommerseth, have experiences with both classroom and private teaching.  She has a vast experience with translations, both simultaneous interpretations as well as translating various written documents.  Lenka holds a Master’s degree in German from Palacky University in Olomouc in the Czech Republic  and Bachelor degree in Norwegian from Masaryk University in Brno in the Czech Republic. She also completed  Norskprøve trinn 4, Bergenstesten and holds a First Certificate in English by Cambridge English Language Assessment.

As a complement to language offerings, basenordic AS provides IT consultancy services with a primary focus on open source based software as well as hardware and cloud service based investments.
