I have recently started working in Sweden as a freelancer and appreciate very much the time and advice that I have been given by longer established peers through the ProZ website.

I would be interested in some advice on resources that fellow Swedish-English translators find particularly useful both online and literature that is worth purchasing.

A big thank you to all that have helped me!

Buy Gullberg's Sv-Eng Fackordbok. It very big and very expensive if you're just starting out, but it's worth every single öre. A good Swe-Swe dictionary is also invaluable and a Swedish "uppslagsbok" can help with names/places etc.

Dear Ben,

The above combination is IMHO the best on the market (if it is still available).

Please do not hesitate to approach me privately.
