Swedish term or phrase: extension
I'm editing a translation and the following sentence caught my eye:

"Utvidgningen gör det möjligt för användaren att infoga signaturer var som helst i ett elektroniskt dokument. Valet av lämplig plats för signatur överlåts på dokumentets signatär/er."

Here's the English:
"The extension allows users to place signatures at any location in an electronic document. Appropriate signature placement is left to the discretion of the designer/signer(s) of the document."

Isn't "tillägg" the Swedish equivalent of "extension"?
