Can anyone recommend an excellent Danish to English dictionary or online resource - the kind that contains many of those unusual words that end up being posted on Proz.com? I find that standard dictionaries only include standard words, which I already know! I translate primarily within the marketing, IT and business arenas. Thanks, Charlotte

ordbogen.com Jan 26, 2011

I find ordbogen.com to be an excellent resource. Many specific and specialized terms and it has the possibility to look up phrases or specific sub-terms (e.g. "look for" rather than just "look"). A year's subscription is only 129DKK (if I remember correctly), so very reasonable.

If you are stuck on a specific phrase or term, you might also try asking a KudoZ question here on ProZ (under Terminology) to see if one of your peers might be able to helpicon_smile.gif

With the option of more dictionaries Jan 26, 2011

ordbogen.com is definitely a good buy, and you have the option of adding specialist dictionaries, such as the regnskabsordbogen, which used to be free, but now costs a little extra.

Another really good one - but rather more expensive - is Gyldendals Røde.
This comes in "different sizes" at different prices too.
Naturally, it is cheaper if you do not need the medical or law dictionary, but if you do, then I think they are the best on the market.

The business section (Fagordbog) in the core pack is very good for a lot of technical and business terms.
