STP’s Swedish translation services are primarily from English and to a lesser extent from German, French and the other Nordic languages. See language combinations below. In 2013 we translated over 12 million words into Swedish.

Swedish (svenska) is a North Germanic language, spoken by more than 9 million people, predominantly in Sweden and parts of Finland, especially along the coast and on the Åland islands.
The Swedish alphabet is a 29-letter alphabet, using the basic 26-letter Latin alphabet plus the three additional letters Å / å, Ä / ä, and Ö / ö.
STP has its own comprehensive style guide for Swedish that all our translators endeavour to adhere to in their work, unless a client-specific or project-specific style guide takes precedence.
By virtue of specialising in a select number of languages, STP can justify and afford to invest in comprehensive in-house reference materials, both linguistic and domain-specific.
We have a very extensive range of general and specialised dictionaries in electronic or hard copy format, accessible to all our in-house translators. Clients should always feel free to enquire which specific reference materials we have used while producing a given translation.
Thanks to STP having been in business since 1995, having invested in technology from an early stage and having achieved a considerable scale of operations, all our in-house translators have access to server-based translation memories containing many millions of words previously translated by us or added from other publicly available reference sources such as the European Union, European Medicines Agency and Microsoft. For the English-Swedish language combination we have well over 80 million words of such content in our in-house server translation memories, which are an enormously valuable source of terminology inspiration to our in-house translators.
