Can the Danish word formular, other than form (as in fill out a form), also mean formel (as in programming)????

misprint of formula

I guess this is a misprint

No, I would not use formula in Danish - but so many people use a sloppy language full of particularly English words often spelt wrong - so you have to be careful when you translate. Look at the quality of the rest of the text before you go for my solution that it is a misprint - use formel in Danish.

By the way - a little bit of context might help

Asker: So you can use both formel and formula in Danish, did I get that right? :)

Asker: I had a hard time pulling out the context :), I just had the doubt because of dealing with ordreformular and plainly formular, and this is a text dealing with programming. I am supposed to translate FROM Danish :) Thanks anyway!!

Asker: I made a typo and misread :/ I meant if both formel and formular were commonly used for the english formula (as in programming)?
