Translators        
A word of caution: Most translators (and some of the above glossaries) are made for modern Swedish. They will not recognize old spelling or older grammar. Use them to get the general idea of a document but they can never replace a translation made by a person who can understand the text and has knowledge of the time and circumstance under which they were created.
