Professional Danish translation is essential for businesses looking to communicate with Danish companies in their own language. There are approximately 5.6 million Danish speakers in the world. Most reside in Denmark, but Danish is also used in parts of Iceland, the Faroe Islands, Greenland and even parts of the United States.
Danish is a North Germanic language with links to Old Norse (the language used in parts of Scandinavia during the Viking Era), and it is considered to be mutually intelligible with Swedish and Norwegian. Although Denmark does not have an ‘official’ language, ‘Standard Danish’, which is based on the dialect spoken in Copenhagen, is the de facto language in Denmark and one of the two official languages of the Faroe Islands.
Denmark boasts a modern market economy with state-of-the-art industry and is home to some of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies and maritime shipping companies. It also has a high-tech agricultural sector and a renewable energy sector. Denmark is highly dependent on foreign trade to drive its economy. Using professional Danish translation services will be beneficial to your business if dealing with clients in Danish-speaking countries.
