Danish - German and German - Danish translations

The official language of one of the wealthiest countries in the world: Danish

Granted, the Danish language sounds a bit strange, and is much more difficult for Germans to understand than Swedish or Norwegian. This is due, however, to the language's unique pronunciation. It is often said in jest that spoken Danish sounds as though the speaker had a hot potato in his or her mouth. While Denmark is a small country whose residents possess an extensive knowledge of foreign languages, the Danish language should not to be underestimated. With approximately 5.3 millions speakers, Danish is the official language of Denmark, Greenland and the Faroe Islands — both of which belong both to Denmark — and is a recognised minority language in Germany. Denmark enjoys one of the world's highest GDP per capita and standards of living. Denmark also has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the EU, in addition to a low public debt ratio.

A part of the North Germanic family of languages

Alongside Swedish, Norwegian, Faroese and Icelandic, Danish belongs to the family of North Germanic languages. Danish, Swedish and the two varieties of the Norwegian language are so closely related to one another that speakers can communicate nearly fluently with each other. While a significant part of Danish vocabulary derives from Low German, Danish differs markedly from the West Germanic languages, including High German. As a translation services provider based in Hamburg, we have a long-standing relationship with Denmark and the Danish language: Altona, first incorporated into the city of Hamburg in 200, was originally granted a town charter by a Danish king and was under Danish rule for 200 years — a history that has had a lasting effect on the city. We work with a large number of specialist native Danish translators familiar with local markets.
