Explanation:
If you google "koststed" and "kostnadsted" together, you will see that the two word are used synonymously (e.g. ref. 1). "Kostnadssted", is translated to "cost center" according to Kunnskapsforlagets Stor Engelsk-Norsk Ordbok, Clue for Windows and Aagenæs Engelsk Økonomisk Ordbok.

Ref 1: "Koststed: Skolens/avdelingens kostnadssted."

Ref 2: "Cost Center
The smallest organizational entity where budget and actual cost activities take place, and which has both characteristics pertinent in cost generation and the ability to track and control those costs."
