English to Norwegian

Hi, I accidentaly registered as a native speaker of Norwegian(Bokmal). This causes me not to be able to quote for jobs that require native language Norwegian.

Norwegian and Norwegian (Bokmal) is interchangeable most of the time, and I would like to change my native language to just Norwegian, as most jobs seem to set native language Norwegian as a criteria for quoting (and thus excluding me, with my native Norwegian (Bokmal)...).

I don't seem to be able to change this setting when I try to edit my profile. Is there any way I can do this on my own?

Thanks,

That's the way to do it. The staff will be ready to help you.

I know this seems to be disturbing to you (and you are not the first one who faces this problem). But the impossibility to edit your mother language, is a warranty of consistence, of seriousness.
Otherwise, if people were able to edit their native language freely, many people would do it every week or so, on purpose, in order to be able to get this and that job. And this would be a rather messy workplace...
