Encyclopedias may provide information on all branches of knowledge or treat a specific topic comprehensively, usually in articles arranged alphabetically. They often contain articles of great interest for genealogical research—including those about towns and places, prominent people, minorities, and religions. They can also give information about record-keeping practices, laws, customs, commerce, costumes, occupations, and archaic terminology.

The Family History Library has general knowledge encyclopedias in the Swedish language and also Swedish-English and English-Swedish dictionaries. They are listed in the catalog under:

Sweden - Encyclopedias and Dictionaries

A good dictionary to use for the translation of Swedish/English or English/Swedish is McKay's Modern Dictionary.

Also see the "Language and Languages" section of this outline.
