Facts about the Danish language:

Danish is a language from the Indo-European language family, particularly the North Germanic branch. Danish, Swedish, and Norwegian have their beginnings in Old Norse. Interestingly, due to this shared origin, Danes, Swedes, and Norwegians can converse in their native tongues and remain intelligible to one another.

Old Norse evolved and changed with the times. This caused a fissure, the effect of which was Old Norse becoming two languages: Old West Norse and Old East Norse. Denmark and Sweden shared Old East Norse as a spoken tongue. For writing, however, Latin was the language of choice. It was with written language that Swedish and Danish began their divide to separate entities.

Danish as a language was in its infancy during the 13th century; it was at this time laws and government documents started to use Danish in writing. It was the Protestant Reformation in Germany, however, which would bring to the Danish language the fuel for its fire. In the 16th century the first full translation of a Danish language Bible was published. Following this publication, the use of written Danish exploded.

All this aside, this old form of Danish did not yet look like modern Danish; in fact, different regions spoke and wrote Danish slightly different. Standardization of the language was not achieved until centuries later, using the Danish used in Copenhagen. Changes to the Danish language were slight after this, and a few more variations to the rules finally saw modern Danish come into being.
