English to Swedish Translation Projects
We assist organizations with documentation or marketing material (e.g. brochures, manuals, website content, PowerPoint presentations, product labeling, etc.) that are written in Swedish and require accurate translation into English.
Of course, in addition to English to Swedish and Swedish to English translation assignments, we can also assist you with the translation of the world's most popular languages to and from Swedish: Arabic ↔ Swedish; Spanish ↔ Swedish; French ↔ Swedish; German ↔ Swedish; Italian ↔ Swedish; Portuguese ↔ Swedish; Russian ↔ Swedish; Japanese ↔ Swedish; Chinese ↔ Swedish; Polish ↔ Swedish; to name but the most popular... We can source translation expertise for virtually any language pair.
Swedish Language Style
Our translators, editors and proofreaders render well-written and clearly understandable texts. We place a high value on rendering a finished product that is faithful to the language style of the original text.
Swedish to English Translation Projects
We assist businesses in finding the best available Swedish to English language translation resources – including experienced Swedish language translators (native-speaking Swedish if appropriate or required).
In our experience, a Swedish language native-speaker may not necessarily be the right translator for the job. (See: Common myths and misconceptions about translation.) Though a native-speaker may be preferable for certain translation assignments, having Swedish as a native language may not 'translate into' Swedish language expertise (pun intended). An experienced linguist with strong Swedish and English language translation credentials, in-depth experience and professional credentials, regardless of native language, may often prove to be a better choice.
Identifying and securing the services of the appropriate Swedish language resources is what we do! (Refer to our Swedish translation assignment process for information on our Swedish translation project management process).
In a nutshell, we use professional translators who have a solid mastery of the Swedish language (grammar, spelling, cultural nuances) and a solid understanding of the subject matter.
Once we are confident that the appropriate freelance resources have been identified and certain that we can honour the project deadline, we submit a quote for the translation assignment.
If we cannot secure the appropriate resources, we will do our best to refer you to Swedish translation sources of information that we have confidence in.

Swedish is a North Germanic language, spoken by more than ten million people, predominantly in Sweden and parts of Finland, especially along the coast and on the Åland islands. It is to a considerable extent mutually intelligible with Norwegian and to a lesser extent with Danish. Along with the other North Germanic languages, Swedish is a descendant of Old Norse, the common language of the Germanic peoples living in Scandinavia during the Viking Era.
Standard Swedish is the national language that evolved from the Central Swedish dialects in the 19th century and was well established by the beginning of the 20th century. While distinct regional varieties descended from the older rural dialects still exist, the spoken and written language is uniform and standardized. Some dialects differ considerably from the standard language in grammar and vocabulary and are not always mutually intelligible with Standard Swedish. These dialects are confined to rural areas and are spoken primarily by small numbers of people with low social mobility. Though not facing imminent extinction, such dialects have been in decline during the past century, despite the fact that they are well researched and their use is often encouraged by local authorities.
