I need a volunteer – anyone read and write Swedish?

[Edited to add: Becky and Sereck thank you! Your work is very much appreciated! Translations complete.]

 

There are two articles up on A Voice For Men’s Swedish site that are causing an enormous ruckus in Sweden. All our staff in Sweden are busy dealing with the comments, media inquiries and fallout from these articles and getting translations has been at the bottom of the priority list.

 

Are there any volunteers here who might have the time, interest or ability in translating these two articles for publication at A Voice For Men?

And thank you in advance for your help.

    I can translate it, I’m Swedish but I’m generally known to be notably better at English than most Swedish speaker who tend to be very good at swenglish, just so you know.
    Both articles are quite elaborate so it’s gonna take a while to translate. Do you have a deadline? I won’t waste my time translating if you are going to accept someone elses translations. So yes or no? 😉

    Becky, I would love that! At your convenience. I’m dying to know what has Sweden in such an uproar!

    JB, while I can’t help you, I did notice that Lucien Valsan was among the commenters on one of those posts. While he may not be confident of his abilities, he may know someone who is.
    It wouldn’t surprise me that they’re up in arms about Annelie breaking feminine solidarity.
    Does anyone reading this have contacts at the Defense Language Institute/ Presidio od Monterey?

    Google translate isn’t nearly as good as an actual translator. The nuance is lost, but you can get the general idea fairly well.

    Yeah we were hoping for a translator who could metaphors and such. Looks like Becky will be helping us! Thank you Becky!

    Right, I’ll get right on it. The first link is mostly some bitching about a website publishing something or the other. The second link is an article about a woman ‘coming out’ as AVFM follower and it much better written. Which one do you want translated first?

    Some nuance is lost, but the gist is there.

    I’m curious to know how one can tell when Swedish feminists are in uproar over something, as I thought that was just their natural state of being. Who is Annelie?

    Thank you Jacob. We have a Swedish woman translating so we can capture that nuance!

    I am done. Where do I send it? It’s after midnight here so it might be good if you’d proofread the whole thing before posting it. I tend to suck at English style punctuation, so my commas might not suit your palate so please feel free to correct the text so it suits a true English speaking reader better. 😀

    Sweden was a paradise in the 90s. They told me now is hell for men.

    Hi everyone! I’m the author of the articles (the second together with William Andersson). I would really love if someone can translate it into english. If you need some nuances to be clearified, just ask me. Yes, and I can assure you that there is a special place in hell for women in Sweden who don’t want to be a part in this bullying feminist shit. And I’m not even offensive or rude in my article but quite gentle 🙂 That’s not necessary here. To be a woman and a teacher at the same time as not being a feminist is quite enough.

    Can we get links for the translated? I don’t see it on AVFM, but I’m not very familiar with navigating their site.
