Danish term or phrase: ud af
I'm wondering whether "ud af" here means "in addition to" or "included in", or could it mean both?

Here's the context:
"Ud af forsikringssummen omfatter forsikringen en maskine tilhørende Siemens til en værdi af kr. 5.000."

I'd appreciate your thoughts!

In addition to

Hi Richard,
This sentence is really not clear. I would say that the proper wording should have been: "Ud over forsikringssummen omfatter forsikringen ..." Then the meaning would clearly be "In addition to". I would still maintain that this is probably the intended meaning but as mentioned, this sentence is not good Danish!
I hope this helps :-)

On second thought, I believe that the meaning may rather be "included in". Then the English translation would be, "Included in the insurance sum is a machine belonging to Siemens representing a value of DKK 5.000", or similar. Would that make more sense?

It means literally "out from" or "based on"
The whole sentence should be translated as follows:
Based on the the insurance sum, the insurance company would regard a Siemens machine as worth 5,000 crowns.

I know this isn't the exact translation but that's what it means. It's similar to the Norwegian
