With vast numbers of asylum applicants lacking documentation to support their claim, language analysis is a key instrument in the asylum process.
The Norwegian authorities have made language analysis subject to public procurement, requiring, among other things, that native speakers be used and argumentation referring to dialectal features be attested in literature. The decision came as a result of the quality that VERIFIED strives to maintain in offering services of language analysis and the scope of languages that can be tested. The example cases provided also contained the level of detail and transparency expected by the client.
VERIFIED has been awarded the contract and is looking forward to continue to develop its service in collaboration with Politiet UD and UDI.
VERIFIED wishes to express its gratitude for this vote of confidence.
Verified provides expert testimony regarding linguistic behaviour, in particular relating to an individual´s linguistic background. These services are required by police, migration authorities and immigration attorneys for trials in court. We also assist non governmental organisations.
