German-Danish dictionary

A German-Danish dictionary to dive in the Danish culture

For German native speakers, learning Danish is more than learning a foreign language. Assimilating vocabulary from a language that belongs to the same family will make you reflect upon your own language. The German Danish dictionary will show you that words like forudse follow the same pattern as German (voraussehen) and that a word like this stems from three Danish words (for-ud-se). The Danish language is regulated under the aegis of the Danish Language Committee (Dansk Sprognævn) - such an organization simplifies the grasp of Danish, it makes it a lot more tangible and helps you to differentiate made-up words from real Danish words. Given the high penetration of English words in Danish, it is also interesting to double-check what the official translation of words like computer chip or marketing are, even if these words are commonly used in Denmark.
