A descendant of Old Norse and part of the Nordic languages group, Danish is a North Germanic language spoken predominantly in Denmark and a small part of northern Germany (Southern Schleswig). It is also one of the two official languages of the Faroe Islands and is an officially recognised minority language in Greenland, where around a fifth of the population speak Danish as their mother-tongue.

Together with Swedish and Norwegian, Danish forms part of the trio of main Scandinavian languages. Whilst the three are similar, only highly skilled speakers of any of these three languages can understand each other. Any grammarians amongst you will be interested to learn that, although verbs are conjugated in accordance with the corresponding tense, it does not change according to the subject, making for easy conjugation (until you reach the irregular verbs…). The Danish alphabet has 29 letters – it uses the 26-letter Latin alphabet plus 3 additional letters.

We offer professional Danish to English and English to Danish translations, as well as other language combinations including Danish, in a variety of subject areas.

A tip to bear in mind is to allow flexibility in the layout of your documents. When translating from Danish into English, the text will typically expand by about 10-15% depending on the subject matter. In the other direction (English to Danish), expect to see a contraction rate of 10-15%.

We work to the following ‘golden rules’:

  • All translators work into their mother tongue
  • All translators are qualified and experienced professional linguists
  • We ensure that the translator has sufficient understanding of the subject matter
  • We use the latest translation technology sensibly to provide an accurate and prompt service
