agree  E2efour (X): villkorsbestämmelser is the same as villkor, but could also be translated as the general insurance conditions or suchlike

agree  Madeleine MacRae Klintebo: Has this originally been translated EN-SV? That might be a reason why an over ambitious translator has added the unnecessary "bestämmelser". "Terms and conditions" are generally only "villkor" in Swedish.
