Translations of Norwegian job titles to English

Here's a list of Norwegian job titles, translated into English. Note that job titles should be capitalized if they are next to a name (Pro-Rector Kari Melby) but when the title is not next to the name it is not capitalized (Kari Melby is pro-rector at NTNU). If you are looking for a job title translation that you don't find here, try the UHR termbase or send an email to Nancy Bazilchuk.
