"She made an important discovery when she worked on her project."

Translation:Hun gjorde en vigtig opdagelse da hun arbejdede på sit projekt.

January 28, 2015



Can someone explain why there isn't inversion in the second part of the sentence? i. e. "...da arbejdede hun på sit projekt."


This doesn't happen after conjunctions, only after adverbial phrases or when the subordinate clause comes before the main clause. So a good example would be: Da hun arbejdede på sit projekt, gjorde hun en vigtig opdagelse (When she worked on her project, she made an important discovery)
