Danish is a language spoken by approximately 6 million people. Though Danish speakers are mainly in Denmark, it also has minority language status in the German region of Southern Schleswig and there are small Danish-speaking communities to be found in such places as Spain, Norway, Sweden, the United States, Canada, Argentina and Brazil. Officially it is native to Denmark, Greenland, Faroe Islands and Southern Schleswig (Germany).

Danish is a North Germanic language and a descendant of Old Norse (the common language across Scandinavia during the era of the Vikings). The classification of mutual intelligibility lists Danish, Swedish and Norwegian as ‘mainland Scandinavian’. In fact, Danish, Norwegian and Swedish are largely mutually intelligible.

In addition to Danish translation services, Axis Translations offers Danish interpreters for a large variety of circumstances.
