Does anyone know of a good Swedish-English on-line resource for translating (or even getting the Swedish definition for) Swedish acronyms used in everyday writing eg. bl.a. (bland annat), etc. I need something that would be fairly extensive and cover less common variations as well.



Thanks so much,

Paula

I am not aware of any online resources for this. However there is a downloadable list at: http://www.sfoe.se/Sprakgrupper/abbreviations_and_acronyms.htm

and I think we should all contribute to it.
