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 help

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.
