Danish Translation Services in India
Present day Danish is spoken by over 6 million people, predominantly in Denmark, Iceland, Greenland, Faroe Islands and northern parts of Germany. There are Danish speaking communities also present in Argentina, Canada and the United States. Danish is classified as a Mainland Scandinavian Language and shares the use of common alphabets with Norwegian script.
Danish evolved into existence in the 8th century from the Old Norse, which got disintegrated into Old West Norse towards Norway & Iceland and Old East Norse towards Denmark and Sweden. Both the dialects of the Old East Norse had a common runic alphabet script. Danish was also brought to England by the Vikings and till this day we can see its influence in the English language with the words like Husband, Knife, Egg, etc. still being used.
While these different dialects might be unintelligible from each other verbally, the written Chinese language has been standardized and uniformly understood throughout the region, regardless of the dialect that it is spoken in.
About Danish Language
There is no constitutionally appointed language in Denmark; hence the status of the Danish language is that of a de facto national language. Its use is widespread and the legal courts use the language in their working systems. The use of three main dialects of Island, Eastern and Jutlandic in modern day Danish has been on a decline and ever since 1960, Standard Danish has gained prominence especially around the Copenhagen region which is home to around 25% of the Danish population.
