Danish-German and German-Danish translation services

Official language of one of the richest countries in the world: Danish

The Danish language can sound peculiar to our ears and is significantly more difficult to understand for a German than, say, Swedish or Norwegian. This is mainly due to its pronunciation. Germans tend to joke that Danish has to sound as though the speaker is holding a hot potato in their mouth. Even though Denmark is a small country, many of whose citizens have extensive multilingual skills, the Danish language is far from insignificant. With around 5.3 million speakers, it is an official language of Denmark, Greenland and the Faroes, both of which belong to Denmark, and a recognised minority language in Germany. Denmark has one of the highest gross per capita incomes in the world, and is considered one of the countries with the highest standard of living globally. Alongside low government debt, Denmark has one of the lowest rates of unemployment in the EU.

Part of the North Germanic family of languages

Along with Swedish, Norwegian, Faroese and Icelandic, Danish belongs to the family of North Germanic languages. Danish, Swedish and the two varieties of Norwegian are so closely related that speakers of any of these languages can communicate with relative ease. Even though Danish vocabulary borrows heavily from Dutch, Danish as a language is very different from the West Germanic languages such as Standard High German. As a translation service provider from Hamburg, we have strong traditional links with Denmark and the Danish language: The quarter of Altona, which became part of the city of Hamburg only in 1937, was issued a town charter by a Danish king and was subject to Danish rule for 200 years, a circumstance which has had a lasting influence on the city. We work with a large number of mother-tongue Danish translators who are familiar with the local markets.
