Preface

Swedish originated from the North Germanic language and is spoken natively by over 9 million people. Most of the Swedish speaking population is concentrated predominantly in Sweden and also in parts of Finland. Swedish enjoys an equal legal standing with Finnish in Finland.

The Swedish language is categorized as a Indo-European language and belongs to the North Germanic segment of Germanic group of languages. Modern Swedish, also known as Nysvenska, is said to have started along with the European reformation and the advent of printing press which resulted in the first publication of The Bible in Swedish under the orders from the new monarch.

Although Swedish is extensively used officially in Sweden, it is only a de facto language and enjoys no official status by law. It is however, an official language of the European Union and a working language at the Nordic council. Modern Swedish has six main dialect groups:

  • Norrland dialects
  • Finland Swedish
  • Svealand dialects
  • Gotland dialects
  • Götaland dialects
  • South Swedish dialects

About Swedish Language

 The Swedish business culture is considered calm and reserved. The respect for their personal space and thought process is considered a vital part of the Swedish business etiquettes.

Netherlands has an egalitarian social setup where people expect their opinions to be heard and decisions reached at by consensus.  Few business tips while dealing with your Swedish counterparts are:

  • Use arguments with facts to back them up and refrain from making emotional superlatives.
  • Swedes like to come to the point directly with hardly any small talk. It is better to refrain from it while dealing with your Swedish associates.
  • Be punctual and in case you can’t, call up and inform and in case required, reschedule your meeting. Arriving before time is also equally inconveniencing for your Swedish counterparts.
  • Use of exaggerated speech and gestures is a strict no-no as the Swedish revere Modesty and such extravagances are seen in bad taste.
  • Swedes love nature and love to talk about it. It can be an ice breaker to talk about nature and get the conversation going.
  • Do not lump Sweden with other countries of the region. Swedes have a high sense of nationalistic pride.
  • Avoid sarcasm in your talks as it is seen as rude and arrogant.
  • Set an agenda for your meeting beforehand and stick to it.
  • Keep your conduct professional and don’t ask any personal questions as this is considered outright rude behavior.
  • Swedes are at ease with silence during business negotiations. It is not necessary to feel awkward about the silence and unnecessarily speak.

Some of the values that are highly honored in most of the Swedish speaking countries and regions are:

  • Egalitarianism
  • Calmness
  • Direct Communication
  • Family
  • Nature
