Services in general

The Lingua branch of Lingua / Nor­an J÷kuls Ltd. performs language services that include translating, composing, correcting and editing texts. The other branch of the company, Nor­an J÷kuls, offers its customers tourist guiding and consulting services. 

The company founder and manager, Philip Vogler, is principally educated in English, German, teaching, guiding within Iceland, comparative literature and tourism. He has also gained substantial experience as a teacher, translator, driver and guide. See his curriculum vitae here.

We honour non-disclosure obligations and confidentiality on any matters which should remain private.

Philip generally answers phone calls on weekdays, with the exception of Icelandic holidays, or soon returns such calls if the phone number is clear and is within Iceland. E-mails are always answered by the second following workday, though usually much sooner. Generally, the company is capable of undertaking weekend or evening work, and short assignments can normally be finished within three days of arrival.

Lingua / Nor­an J÷kuls takes rural perspectives into consideration, seeking colleagues with expertise and a helpful attitude regardless of where they live, not least in Iceland's rural areas. The company attempts to stay informed about Icelandic culture and tries to support its development, particularly in rural areas.

For five summers, from 1993 to 1997, Philip ran a third arm of the business: the outdoor theatre "Here in East Iceland". Besides plays and folk dancing, the theatre often held concerts, handcraft exhibitions, etc. During the first summer, the shows were held at Ei­ar, but after that the village woods just east of Egilssta­ir became the venue. While Philip had to give up this endeavour due to substantial financial losses, he is still prepared to talk to others who have similar ideas and to support them in potential undertakings.

The Internet has played a key role in the development of Lingua / Nor­an J÷kuls, and is used to find as much information as possible regarding both guiding and appropriate terms and style. In addition, the Internet helps as a promotional tool and in connecting with reliable partners anywhere in the world, for instance when customers require specialised knowledge. Company equipment combined with the newest computer programs should ensure that modern expectations are fulfilled.

Most work occurs electronically, minimising paper use and other garbage from the workplace. The litter that does accumulate is sorted in accordance with the admirable arrangements which the municipality of Fljˇtsdalshéra­ provides. All organic kitchen waste generated by Philip's family is composted and used in their garden, where no poisons have been applied for years.

Above all, the company hopes to honour its motto:
Quality and Service at the Forefront!
