This paper describes the design and compilation of data for the Norwegian-English Student Translation corpus (NEST). Still in the beginning stages, the prospective corpus will contain translations from Norwegian into English produced by students of English at Norwegian colleges and universities. A brief discussion of learner translation corpora is followed by an outline of the principles and procedures applied in the collection of texts, the contributing students, and the source texts for translation. Some samples of data from the collection of student translations are given as an illustration and indication of possible future research applications.
