Danish-German dictionary

The Langenscheidt Danish-German dictionary makes language learning easy

It is a well-known fact that Danish is one of the most challenging languages to learn. Try saying “speciallægepraksisplanlægningsstabiliseringsperiode” – truly, it takes some intense practice to comprehend all sides of the Danish language. Danish is easier for speakers of other Germanic languages, as all of them follow the Latin alphabet and are similar in pronunciation.
But also learners without prior knowledge will find easy access through the Langenscheidt Danish-German dictionary.
Until the 1900s, German was a main language at the Danish Royal Household. This fact explains the multiple German loanwords which can still be found in the Danish language. Especially Denmark’s geographical proximity to Germany and both countries’ trade relationship have caused linguistic overlaps. Therefore, the German learner finds himself in an advantageous position when studying Danish. Lately, also words of other languages – predominantly English – are inherited into the Danish vocabulary which makes Danish even easier to acquire for learners of all countries.

The Langenscheidt Danish-German dictionary is what you need

The updated Danish-German dictionary provides about 230.000 keywords, phrases and translations, going beyond the general vocabulary of the modern Danish language. Furthermore, important terms related to culture, science, technology, economy, politics and sports are provided.
Besides numerous neologisms, a great number of colloquial and vulgar words and phrases have been added to the dictionary. The right vocabulary choice is simplified by lexicological devices. The present data is the result of the longstanding work of the author Stanislaw Walewski and Prof. Dr. Erwin Wedel.
