Keep in mind the technology behind the translation tools has become alot better in recent years, but there are some challenges that the translation tools cannot handle very well. The challenges might be due to:
- The literal translation of a word does not always match the correct meaning. There are many words in Swedish that could have multiple meanings depending on the context of the subject.
- Some words look different from eachother (in spelling) but are very close to each other phonetically.
- There are fewer words in the Swedish language than in the English language.
- It is common to have Swedish words combined to what looks like one word.
