Download Gyldendal's dictionary to your desktop
To get started you need to install a small application on your computer:
Download the DesktopOrdbog to your computer.
It is a quick process and once completed you will have a short-cut to a whole suit of dictionaries readily available on your desktop.

Is it different from the dictionary I already know?
No, not at all. You can use the Desktop version exactly the same way as the online version, that is, to look up words, find translations and grammatical applications, identify phrases and idioms, and even hear the correct pronunciation of words

What languages are covered?
You have the choice of a number of bilingual dictionaries from Danish to any of the following languages: English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Norwegian, Swedish, and vice versa. You also have access to a few specialized and subject-based dictionaries, including Økonomisk Ordbog (economic dictionary).

Hint: Go to settings to decide where you want the dictionary to appear and if you want it to launch whenever you start your computer.
