About Danish

Danish is the language mainly spoken in Denmark and it has about 5.6 million native speakers. Danish is mutually intelligible with Norwegian and Swedish. The Danish alphabet is based on the Latin alphabet and it consists of 29 letters. In addition to 26 standard Latin letters, it has Æ,Ø and Å. In standard Danish orthography, there are no compulsory diacritics, but sometimes the use of an acute accent for disambiguation is allowed.

In order to type these three special letters on a non-Danish keyboard, an easy way is to use keyboard shortcuts on your computer. For example, now you want to type Danish letter Ø on Windows, you just hold your ALT key then type 0216 on your activated Number Pad. You can find a list of codes for those Danish special characters for Windows, Mac and HTML here.

If you need to type Danish on a regular basis, using keyboard shortcuts is obviously inefficient. In this case, you will need to install a Danish keyboard. A typical Danish keyboard will enable you to type Danish easily, but first you need to get familiar with its keyboard layout.The Danish keyboard uses a QWERTY layout and has dedicated keys for letters Æ,Ø and Å.Below is a typical Danish keyboard layout:

To get familiar with the Danish keyboard layout fast, it is suggested that you buy a keyboard or a keyboard sticker of Danish, which has the Danish keyboard layout printed on it and can be placed on the surface of your existing keyboard. However, whether you want to type with a keyboard or a keyboard sticker you need to first install the Danish keyboard.
