From global to local
As you probably already know, there isn’t really one single universal Swedish language. Many Swedish words and phrases can be singular to a particular area and would be as foreign to an Swedish speaker from outside the region as words from Mandarin or Ewokese. On the other side, there are some words that may be used in all Swedish-speaking countries, but which have entirely different meanings depending on which of those countries you’re in.
As such, if you’re planning on expanding your business to one of these Swedish-speaking countries, it’s important to employ the right language. You want the language to sound as natural as possible to the locals, but you also want to avoid mistakenly offending anyone. Therefore, only qualified and experienced Swedish translators can deliver the right and appropriate content translating from one language to another.
Swedish language history
Swedish is an Indo-European language belonging to the North Germanic branch of the Germanic languages. Like all scandinavian languages, Swedish traces itself back from Old Norse, which was spread across Europe by Viking merchants (including settlements in present-day Russia), who made Old Norse one of the most widespread languages of their time.
Starting in the 9th century, Old Norse underwent splits and divisions over time that eventually gave birth to a remarkable three modern languages which are actually mutually intelligible – Swedish, Danish, and Norwegian! The common standardized language that Swedes speak today became firmly established by the Swedish government’s spelling reform of 1906.
The Swedish language knows various different forms and you can count many different dialects in Sweden. If you ever came across to visit the province of Sweden, you’ll notice and standard Swedish won’t save you.
The dialects of Swedish are organised into six general categories: South Swedish, Götaland, Svealand, Norrland, Finland Swedish, and Gotland. In these general categories are large numbers of local dialects, some with very small, tightly focused speaking populations. Charmingly, these dialects are often referred to as “Parish Dialects” because they are frequently restricted to a single parish in rural Sweden.
Many rural dialects – for example, in Dalarna or Ostrobothnia – have pretty noticeable phonetic and grammatical features, such as plural of verbs or archaic case inflection. These dialects may be hardly intelligible to the majority of Swedes.
