I used to be fluent in Norwegian, infact it was my first language. But im afraid to say that now looks just as foreign as it does to you. Damn my memory!

Google OK, came up with text bites contained in apparent Norwegian websites & ending .no hence me guessing Norway but no Google option to translate from there. Babelfish - no Norwegian translation option.

Messiah Khan you can do it, think man think

Well 'Ikke' means 'don't' or 'not'.

And Hentet means fetched I think.

So 'not fetched'

Edit; Does that sound right in the context? And what context is it in out of interest?

But things can never be always translated literally. Actually, rarely so.

So, by your information, I'm inclinded to think it may be properly translated to mean 'I don't have it' or something about 'someone' or 'something' not going somewhere to do 'something.

Thanks for all that, context wise it's the ticked option on a returned package, it doesn't seem refused or incorrectly addressed according to the other unticked options and I can't get in touch with the recipient, just wondered why I had it back for being Ikke Hentet (The Non Reclme just comes up as Not Reclme when I try a French translation, not sure if it's French though)

The language is either Danish or Norwegian as others have pointed out.
I am Danish and written norwegian is essentially the same.
"Ikke hentet" means "Not picked up" in english.
Hope this helps

And my dad(Who is still fairly fluent, unlike me) has just confirmed it.

"That's correct, "not fetched" or "not collected". I'll have to start giving you lessons."

Why didn't you try and work out the French non réclamé bit?
