English to Finland Swedish Translation Services
(We also offer Finland Swedish to English translation services.)
Sweden isn’t the only country that speaks Swedish. It is, indeed, the birthplace of the Swedish language, and most of the world’s Swedish speakers live in Sweden, speaking Standard Swedish. But over in neighboring Finland also live a large Swedish-speaking minority. Unlike Norway and Denmark, Finland does not share a native culture or linguistic roots with Sweden—Swedish and Finnish aren’t even from the same language family. Nonetheless, Finland’s Swedish-speaking minority thrives in the country and speaks their language proudly—so anyone looking to engage a Swedish-speaking Finnish audience should consider specialized English to Finland Swedish translation services.
Standard Swedish and Finland Swedish are largely mutually intelligible—but not always. Certain dialects in Ostrobothnia, the Swedish-speaking region of western Finland, are mostly unintelligible to Standard Swedish speakers and even Finland Swedish speakers in the south of the country. However, regardless of the level of mutual intelligibility, Finland Swedish always contains certain dialectical differences that distinguish it from Standard Swedish and are difficult for translators from Swedish to emulate accurately. That’s why we at TranslationServices.com have created our own English to Finland Swedish translation team for anyone catering to a Swedish-speaking Finnish audience.

What are the differences between Standard Swedish and Finland Swedish?
While Finland Swedish speakers may not account for a large percentage of global Swedish speakers, they represent an important community in Finland. Bilingual communities with a Swedish majority can be found along Finland’s western border and southern tip, with many native Swedish speakers also living in Helsinki, the nation’s capital. Åland, an autonomous archipelago located off the southwestern coast of Finland, is classified as monolingually Swedish speaking. Since Swedish is a compulsory subject in Finnish schools, Finland also accounts for the majority of the world’s Swedish second-language speakers.
Finland Swedish makes an effort to incorporate neologisms from Standard Swedish, which ensures the two variants remain largely cohesive. However, surrounded by a Finnish-speaking majority, Finland Swedish speakers have naturally adopted loanwords and calques (literally translated phrases) from Finnish, which can be difficult for Standard Swedish speakers to understand. Finland Swedish dialects may also contain vocabulary now seen as archaic by Standard Swedish speakers. A translation that incorporates these elements of Finland Swedish is a great way to show your Swedish-speaking Finnish audience that you care.
