Can't "jeg synes det ikke" be an acceptable translation?

Synes has -S for ending, that is passive form of the verb, so it is not conjugatet after 'jeg', I think that is why 'Jeg' does not begin the sentence. But since word order isn't really that important, it might be possible. I am not a Danish speaker, so I can't tell you.

The synes used here is not an actual passive verb.

Yep, sometimes you get rather blind when adding sentences, and it can be difficult to get all the right words the first time around :)

Why is "Jeg tror ikke" wrong? Is it just because no one would say that or is it grammatically incorrect?

I suspect you still need 'det'. In Swedish we could just as well put it (det) in the end, as in the beginning of the sentence. The same goes for Norwegian. So if Danish is comparable, it would be "Jeg tror ikke det".

I don't understand why 'jeg tror det ikke' is not accepted here. I use it day-to-day in Denmark and no has ever corrected me or not understood me. Am I missing something?
