Nordic Food Glossary

Nordic Food Glossary

 

Description

Nordic Food Glossary - Nordic dictionary for food lovers.

“Nordic Food Glossary was very useful when shopping for food on vacation in Iceland.” Angelica Karlsson, Sweden.

The Nordic languages are similar but it can still be difficult to guess the names of different fish, herbs or vegetables in any of the other languages. Nordic Food Glossary is a dictionary developed to help you translate food terminology between the Nordic languages as well as to English. You do not need to be online to search for or view pictures of different foods or ingredients. If you need even more information about a word, a click will get you onto the Internet.

Download Nordic Food Glossary to your Iphone and find the right word in the right language; on holiday, in the restaurant or in the food store.

Please visit our web-site www.nordicfoodglossary.org where you can also make a suggestion about new words or share your best Nordic recipes.

Nordic Food Glossary has been developed on behalf of the Federation of the Norden Associations (FNF). FNF organizes cooperation between the Norden Associations in the five Nordic countries and three autonomous territories and also works closely with the Nordic Council of Ministers and the Nordic Council. FNF is determined to organize the best possible cooperation between the Nordic voluntary organizations and the official Nordic Cooperation Bodies. Web: www.fnf.se

To use this version you need iPhone OS 3.0. For an earlier online version, go to iTunes AppStore and search for "Nordic Kitchen: The Nordic Food Glossary".


Nordic Food Glossary - Norræna matorðaskráin fyrir matarunnendur



Tilvitnun: Norræna matorðaskráin kom að góðum notum þegar við versluðum inn í matinn í fríinu okkar á Íslandi.  Angelica Karlsson, Svíþjóð



Þótt mörg norrænu málanna séu náskyld íslensku, og hvert öðru lík, er enginn hægðarleikur að geta sér til um hvað hinar fjölbreytilegu tegundir af fiski, grænmeti, mjólkurmat eða kjötréttum heita á hverju máli - eða hvað erlendu heitin merkja á íslensku. Lausnina gefur Norræna matorðaskráin, því þar er í sjónhending hægt að fá orð úr einu máli þýtt á öll hin, og líka á ensku. Það er ekki nauðsynlegt að vera nettengd/ur til þess að framkvæma leit eða sjá myndir þegar þær fylgja með. Óskast ýtarlegri upplýsingar um einstaka matarorð er lausnina að finna á netinu.



Sæktu Nordic Food Glossary í símann þinn og finndu rétta orðið á viðkomandi tungumáli á ferðalaginu þínu, á veitingastaðnum eða í matvöruversluninni.



Á heimasíðu okkar www.nordicfoodglossary.org getur þú komið með uppástungu að nýjum orðum fyrir Norrænu matorðaskrána eða bætt við uppáhalds uppskriftunum þínum.



Norræna matorðaskráin var útbúin fyrir Samband Norrænu félaganna (FNF).
Sambandið samræmir og samhæfir samstarf Norrænu félaganna á Norðurlöndunum 5 og sjálfstjórnarsvæðunum 3 og vinnur náið með Norðurlandaráði og Norrænu ráðherranefndinni. Slóð: www.fnf.se

Good Content, Frustrating Implementation

:
With the ascendency of Nordic cuisine, the timing of the Nordic Food Glossary app could not be better timed. Indeed, the nature of New Nordic cooking -- centred around hyper-local and obscure ingredients not likely to be found in your typical travel dictionary -- makes this free app a must download for any gastronomic explorer venturing to Scandinavia.

Welcome though it may be, the app is currently deeply flawed. First, there's no way of scrolling through an alphabetical listing of terms in any language other than your native one. This problem is compounded by the finicky search: "ål" means "eel" in Danish, but if you type "al", the results come up blank.

In contrast to any good iPhone dictionary app, the search is not fuzzy. If you do not type in a term *exactly* as it appears in the app (bearing in mind what you see on a menu may not be exactly the same as it appears in the database), you will not find the word.

It's a shame that searches are so problematic because the app's content is good. It may miss a few terms here and there (such Noma stalwarts as woodruff (skovmærke) are conspicuously absent, as are many mushrooms), but it covers most terms from musk ox to mulberries.

In another example of iffy implementation marring good intentions, the app's database of terms can be updated and even downloads a fresh copy when you first open it (great!) -- but to update it in the future, you must go to the settings menu where you'll find a rather ambiguous on/off switch under "Update". Does this turn updates on and off? Not exactly. If you enable this, you'll find that the app re-downloads the *entire* database (whether it's been updated or not) next time it opens.

In its current state, I don't think the app is robust enough to be the adventurous eater's sole food dictionary in Scandinavia -- you'll still want to access to something like the Nordic Recipe Archive's excellent glossary -- but it's a good start.
