Swedish is a North Germanic language mainly spoken in Sweden and parts of Finland with a total number of 10 million speakers. Swedish is a descent of Old Norse, the language used by people living in Scandinavia during the Viking Era. Based on the Latin alphabet, the Swedish alphabet consists of 29 letters, 26 standard Latin letters and 3 additional letters, namely ‘å’, ‘ä’ and ‘ö’, which are always ranked after the letter (z), so words beginning with those 3 letters are always at the latter part of a typical Swedish dictionary.
In order to type those special letters on a non-Swedish keyboard, you can simply type it using keyboard shortcuts on your computer. For example, For the Swedish letters Å, Ä and Ö, you can type them easily on Windows by holding the ALT key and typing 0197, 0196, 0214 on your Number Pad. For lower cases and other special characters, you can find a list of codes for Windows, Mac and HTML here.
If you need to type Swedish on a regular basis, using keyboard shortcuts is obviously inefficient. In this case, you will need to install a Swedish keyboard. A typical Swedish keyboard will enable you to type Swedish easily, but first you need to get familiar with its keyboard layout. There are dedicated keys for the above three special characters on a Swedish keyboard. In addition, there are dead keys to produce letters with diacritics or accents. Below is a typical Swedish keyboard layout.
To get familiar with the Swedish keyboard layout fast, it is suggested that you buy a keyboard or a keyboard sticker of Swedish, which has the Swedish keyboard layout printed on it and can be placed on the surface of your existing keyboard. However, whether you want to type with a keyboard or a keyboard sticker you need to first install the Swedish keyboard.
