Is "the employees" wrong? I hesitated.

Emplayees=ansatte Workers=arbejderne

Ansatte indicate thst they have a job contract. Arbejderne just that they are working

I put "the employees" and I got it wrong :-/ That seems a bit silly to me.

In organizations that have both directors and managers (directors are normally higher than managers) what words does Danish use to distinguish between the two roles?

Manager could translate to "afdelingsleder " (department leader). An other word used for managers is "mellemledere" (between leaders"

Why not to translate directøren as "the principal" or "the headmaster".

I thought that arbejderne was staff? That's what I learned some lessons before. Why is it wrong?

I believe you're thinking of 'personalet', which was in the previous lesson. Not sure as to how to know when to use which one, as I'm pretty beginner as well, but I tend to remember it as the difference between 'personnel' and 'workers'. One is hired, or employed, whereas the other one just works.

why aren't workers the same as workmen

Because all workmen are workers, but not all workers are men -- a great many of them are women!
