Simple translation for a tattoo  » answer
by nickolaspdoyle, 2015-01-12, 20:38  like dislike  Spam?  24.59.88....
Hi all! I need your help translating something that I would like to get as a tattoo. When I was growing up, my grandfather was constantly putting me down. I would get called a "God Damn Swede" on a daily basis (I'm 50% Swedish). At the time, it hurt more than anything, but as I've grown into adulthood, I have managed to use those words as inspiration, rather than the hurt they were originally spoken for. I would love to know the proper translation into Swedish, so that I may get a constant reminder of the struggles I have had to overcome, and the power that those once hateful words have given me to overcome any obstacle thrown my way. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have tried the auto translators, and have gotten several  different results. Since this will be a permanent tattoo, I need to have it perfectly in Swedish! Thank you in advance!!

I realize this is a very late response, but an appropriate translation would be "jävla svenne".

I need to translate this text but I'd rather if it's written the way it's pronounced.

There are 9.7 million people in Sweden, of whom about 2 million are under the age of 18. Eighty-five percent of them live in cities. Sweden is a very multicultural country: 15 per cent of Swedes were born in another country, while about one in five children in Sweden has a family with roots in another country.
The capital of Sweden, Stockholm, is also the country’s largest city, with more than 850,000 inhabitants. Other large cities are Gothenburg, in western Sweden (population 532,000), and Malmö (population 300,000) in the south. Uppsala and Lund are well-known university cities.

Less than three per cent of Sweden’s land area is built up and forests cover 69 per cent of the country. Sweden is...

Need Help With Swedish Description of Fossil Crab » answer
by Samantha1827, 2014-07-24, 20:36  like dislike  Spam?  131.123.230...
Hello! I was hoping someone could help me with a Swedish description of a fossil crab, described by Segerberg in 1900. I have been using online translators/dictionaries as well as Wessely's Dictionary of the Swedish and English Languages, but I am still finding it difficult to make sense of most of the description. The desciption consists of four small paragraphs. I will share only the first paragraph. If someone is willing to help further, I can share more! Thank you in advance!! Also - the text will be describing various aspects of the crab carapace, such as regions and ornamentation.

Rostrum smalt triangulärt med plan, omärkligt konkaverad öfversida och helbräddade ränder, å ömse sidor om basen försedt med en framåtrigtad tagg.

inflectionless verbs in Swedish » answer
by Pedroski (UN), Last modified: 2014-04-13, 01:31  like dislike  Spam?  
Hi, I cannot speak Swedish, but I hear, Swedish has no verb inflections, so the verb stays the same in all persons. I did ask on this forum once, and some kind soul confirmed this for me.

English is almost the same, with the exception of the Third Person, which usually carries an extra 's', as in 'likes, loves, cooks'

If English were not so, we might have some tricky situations, such as:

The horse stand stand in the meadow. (horse stand is a compound noun)
The sunflower flower in June.
The rainwater water the fields.
The sunshine shine on the water.

From these four simple examples, I hope you can see what I'm getting at.

I believe a lot of language is just habit, with a background of logic.

How does Swedish, with no verb inflections, even in the Third Person, get around this problem?? Does this kind of word double up even occur in Swedish? Could you give me any examples, maybe the four above, please?
inflection in Swedish  #769431
by wawaio, 2014-09-21, 13:25  like dislike  Spam?  161.52.14...
Hi, I am only a beginner myself, but I think I can show you one aspect of how this works.

In English, some nouns and verbs have the exact same form, as you have shown in your examples.
(flower - to flower, water - to water, stand - to stand, etc.)
In Swedish, you have the infinitive form of a verb, that in some cases can be the same as the noun. A very good example for this is flower: blomma. The verb is also blomma, but only in infinitive form. There still is an inflected form, which is used for ALL PERSONS. This is the difference. So you have infinitive forms and personal forms. The verb blomma (infinitive) turns into blommar when it is used with any kind of grammatical person.

This means that "inflected" verbs usually have other endings than nouns, so you can immediately tell the difference.
(the) water: vatten, (to) water: vattna, (someone) waters: vattnar
(the) stand: stånd, (to) stand: stå, (someone) stands: står

Most verbs have an added -r in the end for persons in present tense. :)

Ordning är arbetets hävstång » answer
by Fegele (UN), 2014-01-14, 10:21  like dislike  Spam?  
Hej! Jag måste översätta : "Ordning är arbetets hävstång" till engelska.
Order is the lever that gets work done. (?)

Any ideas? Help! Thank you.
by Thonatas (DE/SE), Last modified: 2014-01-30, 19:00  like dislike  Spam?  
"Ordning är arbetets hävstång" is a saying - therefore, a direct translation does not make sense. The German translation would be "Ordnung ist das halbe Leben." (Order is half the life) - dict.cc translates that one into "A tidy house, a tidy mind." and "Cleanliness is next to godliness." - maybe you have heard of one of these.

An alternative translation by me: Order is half the battle (at least the "half the battle" part is idiomatic).
