General information about the Swedish language
Swedish is a Scandinavian language and forms part of the Germanic language group. It is therefore also part of the Indo-European language family. Swedish isn’t just the official language of Sweden, but is also used in parts of Finland. Finland has legally established that Swedish has the same status as Finnish as an official language at national level.
Swedish is the native language of some 8.5 million people. Approximately 8 million of these live in Sweden and around 290.000 in Finland (5.5% of the population), where they represent the Swedish speaking minority.
Swedish people can communicate with Norwegian and Danish people almost effortlessly. However, there are still some regional differences. For example, while the Swedish in the South (mainly in Skåne) have little difficulty understanding Danish as a result of their Danish related dialect, the people living in West Sweden (for example in Värmland or Dalarna) have a great deal of trouble understanding Danish. These Swedes can, however, quite easily understand Norwegian.
