Recommended dictionaries and glossaries

The Swedish Council for Higher Education - UHR is responsible for the Swedish-English/English-Swedish dictionary for higher education. The dictionary is updated every year in December after new and revised terms have been published on the basis of a referral process involving universities and related organizations.

The Book of Foreign Names (Utrikes namnbok) is compiled by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and contains translations into English, German, French, Spanish and, to some extent, Finnish and Russian, of the names of authorities and organizations, EU bodies and countries. In addition, it contains translations of the titles of civil servants.

Stockholm University subscribes to the Wordfinder service, which includes dictionaries for translation from English to Swedish and Swedish to English.

The National Encyclopedia's dictionaries are also useful for translating from and into English.

The European Commission's "English style guide" is primarily intended for native speakers and English translators working for the European Commission. It also serves as a reminder and inspiration for a wider circle of readers with other native languages.
