Do you have to learn Danish to work in Denmark?

People interested in coming to Denmark for work often ask, “Do you have to learn Danish to work in Denmark?”

The answer is no – in some cases. If you are an IT specialist or an engineer, finding an all-English speaking environment in Denmark won’t be difficult. Danish companies that specialize in technology, gaming, architecture, or infrastructure generally have customers and employees from all over the world, and they do business in English.

In addition, many of Denmark’s largest employers, like Maersk and Novo Nordisk, have English as their corporate language.
