Kustordlistan.se – en Eng-Swe-Eng kustordlista för ingenjörer och planerare / Kustordlistan.se – An Eng-Swe-Eng Coastal Dictionary for engineers and planners
According to the authors’ many years of experience in coastal projects around Sweden, there is a great need for an improved Swedish terminology for engineering issues and planning of coastal areas. This article presents, thus, an English-Swedish dictionary, including explanatory comments, with an ambition to clarifying a wide range of words and expressions. This dictionary is also available online at kustordlistan.se in a living version that will be updated as such a need arises. On kustordlistan.se there is also a Swedish-English version of the dictionary. Both the English-Swedish and Swedish-English dictionaries are aimed at Swedish-speaking readers as the explanations are given in Swedish irrespective of whether the table refer to the translation from Swedish to English or vice versa. The Swedish-English dictionary can, thus, both be used to find the corresponding English words of a known Swedish coastal term and to understand the meaning of an unknown Swedish coastal term.
