December 2020 - Clue version 10.11 is launched

As an active Clue user, you should now have access to the latest content.

The vast majority of our customers use the Norwegian-English/English-Norwegian dictionary. The dictionary now includes 50,000 new terms which are used by the EU in areas such as law, finance, technology, the environment and health. A new version of the Norwegian-German/German-Norwegian dictionary is also available.

We put a great deal of effort into ensuring that the dictionaries are up-to-date and relevant, especially in key areas such as economics, law, medicine and technology. We also work continuously to identify new everyday words for inclusion.

The content of Clue is developed using input from our customers, various disciplines, language editors and translators. We would like to extend our thanks to all of you.
