When you move to a foreign country that speaks a foreign language, getting access to the local news can feel more than frustrating. It can leave you feeling clueless and isolated. What you took for granted, now is cause for great consternation and confusion. I do love the auto translate feature on my Google Chrome browser, but it can only go so far and mostly butchers the quirky Danish to English translations. And while I try to read some articles in Danish, most of the time I just need to understand what is going on. Stat. Know what I mean?
Thankfully in Copenhagen, there is an English language news source for expats and international readers. The Copenhagen Post is written in English, by English speakers and is available in a small weekly print edition as well as online. And now – it is available as a mobile application. The app is free and available to locals and visitors alike. It offers all of the Post’s online digital content at your fingertips and breaks out stories for current events, food/drink, local culture, history and general life in Denmark.
