VERIFIED to renew contract with Norwegian authorities

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.

Verified employs a dozen of linguists, trained in areas such as creole languages, dialectology, interview technique and forensic phonetics.

Verified has conducted in excess of 24.000 analyses. The use of the same rigorous and well-defined methodology in each case ensures that analysis reports can be assessed and used in a safe and easy way, whether that be during an investigation or in court.

Equally indispensable for a clear and reliable result is the active language competency of a native speaker. To meet this requirement, Verified maintains a network of around 240 native speakers with training in auditory analysis to cover about 100 combinations of linguistic varieties and regions.
