"Det er ikke formålet med vores arbejde."

Translation:That is not the purpose of our work.

May 5, 2015



Why is med used? I would have thought it should be af?

    With certain nouns, you use med. Such as formål and mening (there might be more).

    For instance: Meningen med livet = The meaning of life


    Aim, purpose? Pretty much the same here, I'd say...


    I'm wondering if 'that is not the goal of our work' should also be accepted.


    I checked the hints for the use of the word med. It did not allow for this particular usage.
