In so far as commercial efforts go, I also recommend the GrammarSoft
stuff. You can try out the Danish one online here:
If you are interested in using Constraint Grammar for your tagging
needs, it is also worth noting that Norwegian and Sámi Constraint

Universities of Tromsø (for Sámi) and Olso (for Norwegian). Tromsø also
has a development versions of some other taggers under the GPL.
