Danish as a language has descended from the ancient language of Old Norse, which also gave rise to Norwegian and Swedish. It is thought and understood that the Danish language started to become distinct in its own right around 1000 CE. It wasn’t until around the 1700s that the Danish language became standardized due to written language becoming more common, and a spelling reform universally adopted for the language. In the modern age the language has risen to be spoken by over 5.4 million people within Denmark and over 5.6 million people across the world.
So, who else speaks it besides the people in Denmark? The biggest concentration of Danish speakers can be found in Greenland, where the language is taught in schools and learned as a second language. Danish speakers also populate the Faroe islands that are a part of the Kingdom of Denmark. Both of these places account for around 100,000 Danish speakers. The rest of the Danish speakers can be found as second language speakers in Germany and Sweden. However, small pockets of Danish speakers can be found in Canada, Norway, the United Arab Emirates, and the United States.
The diverse background of where Danish is spoken has given rise to various accents and dialects within the language. Meaning that a Danish Language Voice Actor from Greenland or Germany will most likely have a different accent from a Danish Language Voice Actor from Denmark itself.
Unlike other languages in the same geographical region of Scandinavia, Danish tends to be more standardized due to more than a quarter of Danish speakers living in Danish cities. The rest of the traditional dialects are only spoken by older generations or have gone extinct due to the modernization of the language.
In the modern age, the remaining dialects are split up into three main areas of Denmark. The Insular Danish dialect that includes the dialects of Zealand, Lolland, Falster, Funen, and Møn. The Jutlandic (jysk) dialect that can be further identified into North, South, East, and West variations. And the Bornholmian (bornholmsk) dialect. Most Danish out with Denmark will make use of one of these dialects.
At Voquent we want to offer as many of these variations of the language as possible. Part of the value we add is being able to provide tens of thousands of voice actors, each with their own specialities and native dialects.
We take pride in that every voice actor we work with has been vetted for professional work by our in-house production specialists. We make sure that a voice actor’s home studio can produce recordings to the high-quality standard we have here at Voquent. Our worldwide reach means that we can book a voice actor into a recording studio if their home studio isn’t up to scratch with what your project requires.
