About us OBS FAQ Contact us Positions Press center/centre
Explanation:
Om oss = 'About us'

OBS in Swedisch = 'Please note!' or 'NB!' (Nota bene). What it has to do with FAQ is unclear.

FAQ is practically Swedish. A Swedish acronym is not in existence. FAQ translates into 'Ofta ställda frågor' but as a Swedish heading is used: 'Frågor och svar'

Kontakta oss = 'Contact us'

Stillinger = 'Positions' in Norwegian or Danish. In Swedish it would be 'Jobb', 'Lediga jobb' or 'Anställning'. At first I thought it was a proper name and if so, it should not be translated.

'Pressensenter' is Norwegian for 'Presscentrum' and means 'Press centre'(UK) or 'Press Center'(US)
