How do they write the date in Sweden?

The ISO 8601 standard is used in most written Swedish in Sweden, while earlier versions still exist. Dates are usually and officially written in the format YYYY-MM-DD, such as 2001-08-31 for August 31st, 2001, or in the complete format YYYY-MM-DD (31 August 2001). The month is always shown in Arabic numbers, with January as 1 and December as 12.

In practical use, dates are also often written as ordinary words followed by the day, month and year: engelsk svensk datum dagar januari månad februari år 2007. English Swedish date days January March April May June July August September October November December 2007.

Note that Swedish years start at Januari 1 and not at Januari 0, so this statement means that 2007 is a normal Swedish year containing 365 days.

Also note that when writing dates in English, many people omit the year. For example, "1 February 2007" would be read as if it were written in 2003, even though it's clearly about 2007. This is because once you get past just a few months, it's easier to remember what happened on which day of the month rather than which year. So although Swedes know that 2007 is a different year from 2006, they wouldn't know it from just reading "1 February 2007".

Sweden is a country where time is important.

How do you write the date in Europe?

Official EU papers continue to use DD, MM, and YYYY, however one document stipulates ISO 8601: "Dates shall be expressed in the following format: YYYY-MM-DD."

In addition, European Union official documents use the term "day" instead of "date". For example, a document may say that some action took place on "the day after tomorrow" or "the day after". No date is needed because it is assumed you are referring to a future event. However, if you want to express an exact date, such as the first day of spring, you can use the phrase "on the first day of spring".

The United States uses the word "date" for both the month and the day of the week. So, in America, you would normally write the date as DD/MM/YY. The only time this does not apply is when citing something found in a newspaper. In this case, the date would be written as an article plus day/month/year. For example, the date of this sentence is January 2, 2015.

In conclusion, there is no single standard way to write dates in Europe or North America. However, they are usually written as two words with a space between them.

How do you write the date in French in Canada?

The Government of Canada advises using the ISO 8601 YYYY-MM-DD format for all-numeric dates in both English and French. This is also the date format specified by the Standards Council of Canada.

In Quebec, the standard way to write the date in French is with the year first, then month and day separately: "2017-05-15". In other provinces, it's common to omit the year when writing dates in French: "Le 15 mai 2017" or "15 mai 2017".

Dates are written as numbers on a calendar page in France. The number 1 indicates January, the number 2 February, etc. So, the date 15 March has the numeric value 30.

Americans may see the date 15 March but believe that it is 2015 because we count from the year America entered the war, not from its founding in 1776 as many other countries do.

French Canadians use the same date format as in France. They count from January 1st instead of December 31st like most Americans.

Dates can be found almost everywhere in Canada. They are usually written in some form of numerals on an official document. You should know how to read them if you come across any dates during your travels.

How does Denmark write time?

The official standard in Denmark is YYYY-MM-DD ISO 8601, however it is not frequently used in comparison to the historically used standard DD.MM. (YY) YY (for example, 24.12.2006 for Christmas Eve and 1.5.2006 or 01.05.2006).

ISO 8601 is a widely used standard for date/time representation. The format consists of two sections: year-month-day and hour:minute:seconds. The year section contains four digits while the month and day sections contain from 01 to 12 and 31 to 365 respectively.

Denmark uses a common time zone called Central European Time (CET), which is one hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

There is an agreement between the Danish government and the European Union that Denmark will continue to use CET even after they join the EU. However, it is possible that Denmark may agree to use GMT after they enter into force of the EU treaty that governs relations between the EU and its members.

In case you are interested in the difference between CET and GMT: GMT is six hours ahead of Copenhagen time, while CET is five hours ahead.

So, if it's 9 o'clock in Copenhagen on Thursday night, it's 2 a.m. on Friday in New York City.

How are dates written in Denmark?

The written date format in Danish, as in many other European languages, is dd. Mm. yyyy. If you want to write or speak the month out loud, you would write February 28 as 28.02.2015 and spoken Danish would say årtiårsochttien Februar 2015.

January has one letter, and it is "J". February has two letters: "F" and "R". March has three letters: "M", "A" and "S". April has four letters: "L", "V", "E" and "R". May has five letters: "G", "D", "T", "Q" and "K". June has six letters: "S", "U", "N", "T", "F" and "R". July has seven letters: "S", "U", "N", "T", "F", "O" and "D". August has eight letters: "S", "U", "N", "T", "F", "O", "R" and "D". September has nine letters: "S", "U", "N", "T", "F", "O", "R", "C" and "D".
