We present the program package 2HDECAY for the calculation of the partial decay widths and branching ratios of the Higgs bosons of a general CP-conserving 2-Higgs doublet model (2HDM). The tool includes the full electroweak one-loop corrections to all two-body on-shell Higgs decays in the 2HDM that are not loop-induced. It combines them with the state-of-the-art QCD corrections that are already implemented in the program HDECAY. For the renormalization of the electroweak sector an on-shell scheme is implemented for most of the renormalization parameters. Exceptions are the soft-Z_2-breaking squared mass scale m^2_12, where an MS condition is applied, as well as the 2HDM mixing angles alpha and beta, for which several different renormalization schemes are implemented. The tool 2HDECAY can be used for phenomenological analyses of the branching ratios of Higgs decays in the 2HDM. Furthermore, the separate output of the electroweak contributions to the tree-level partial decay widths for several different renormalization schemes, computed consistently with an automatic parameter conversion between the different schemes, allows for an efficient analysis of the impact of the electroweak corrections and the remaining theoretical error due to missing higher-order corrections.
