Poke is “peta” when Facebook goes Swedish

Facebook will soon release a version in Norwegian (via NRK beta). The social networking site has been translated by members to Norwegian and is currently in a voting stage where users are choosing the best options for different translations. Facebook is also soon to be released in Swedish, according to the Translation application on the site.

“Poke” is currently “peta” in Swedish and “prik” in Danish. In Norwegian it is still called “poke” although “pirk” and “dytt” are possible alternatives. Other suggestions for poke in Swedish are “puffa” and “knuffa” and users will decide which translation that will win.

1,207 members are currently registered as translators for Norwegian and 480 for Swedish.
