Yes, but unlike most Windows applications, you have to do the 
installation yourself. The proses is a bit unusual to Windows users, 
quite common to Linux users.

Download the wanted help file to your computer from 
ftp://ftp.gimp.org/pub/gimp/help/. The .bz2 file is a zipped file. Unzip 
it using your zip program.
In the GIMP folder share/gimp/2.0 create a folder named help. Copy the 
two letters language folder in the unzipped catalog to the help folder. 
(The other files is of no use in this case). In my version of Windows 
the full path in my computer is .../share/gimp/2.0/help/nn.

BTW: Somebody know why is the help files in http://www.gimp.org/docs/ 
are not updated? The Norwegian help files is still pointing to 
http://www.gimp.org/docs/2.6/no which is not updated anymore and do not 
exist in the git.gnome.org/gimp-help-2 repository. Instead it should be 
pointing to .../2.6/nn which exists in the repository.
