Swedish translation services
On-time delivery guaranteed, with no surcharges ever
An eye for detail
Swedish is spoken by around 9 million people and is an official language in Sweden and Finland. Its closest relative is Danish, which jointly make up the eastern group of north German languages, with the western group composed of Norwegian, Icelandic and Faroese. These languages are so similar to each other that Swedes, Norwegians and Danes can more or less understand each other using their native languages. At the same time, as a result of the regional isolation due to geographical distances and climatic particularities, it is possible to distinguish 20 different dialects. With the help of our native translators, we are up to speed on the slight nuances and constant changes. In order to avoid making mistakes, even when we translate the most complex texts, three experts work on each project: a translator, an editor and a proofreader. All of them work as a full-time translator with at least 5 years’ experience in translation, are native speakers of Swedish and hold a degree in translation.
Translating specialist documents from Swedish or to Swedish
We mainly offer translations from English into Swedish, but we are also comfortable when the source language is another European language, while we naturally translate out of Swedish too. We undertake the translation of countless types of documents, including clinical trial documentation, technical manuals and licence agreements.
We guarantee the very highest quality for all translations we undertake. We expect the translators at Albion Languages to be almost as experienced in the topic of the translation as the author of the document. In the case of technical, scientific and medical translations, for example, the author and the target audience often have a degree in medicine or a PhD – just like our translators.

The Swedish language
Modern Swedish developed from many different dialects and reached its current form in about the 19th century. The base of the Swedish vocabulary is of Germanic origin, however, many French words entered the language in the 18th century. Most recently, English loanwords have entered the language which are usually written in accordance with Swedish pronunciation, e.g. “mejl” (“mail”) or “aktör” (“actor”). There is one word in Hungarian of Swedish origin: “ombudsman.”
