Hi Christine and welcome to the oDesk Community,
Thank you very much for your feedback. I will definitely share your suggestion to add a skill test for Translation to and from Norwegian with our team.
Welcome to oDesk community!
If you see that there are a lot of opportunities for EN-Norwegian translations I strongly believe that it would be helpful to add some portfolio to your profile, considering you don't have the chance to make a test for that.
If you haven't done any "professional" translations yet to put on your portfolio grab a piece of copyright-free text in English language and translate it to Norwegian.
Just an idea
