    Try babel fish. Don't know if they support the language, but it's a start.

    Just make sure to take the fish out before the Vogans read their poetry, horrible stuff. I'd rather chew my arm off.

    Tranlated to Danish at this website, http://translation.langenberg.com/
    fixed gear = nagelfast indgreb
    single speed = ugifte hastighed

    to Swedish
    fixed gear = fästad redskap
    single speed = enkel fart

    Thanks man, but thatīs the direct translation of each word.
    Gear has several meanings, and when you combine the words ex Fixed gear, they form their own word...

    1: The closest you'll get to a Swedish terminology would be 'fast utväxling' or 'fast drev' for 'fixed gear; [/]'track bike[/I] translates into 'bancykel' in Swedish ('banecykel' in Danish). Singlespeed is, well, singlespeed. These words are pretty sketchy and un-googlable, though: there are only about 10-15 FG riders in Sweden, the last velodrome closed in the 60s, and you'll have a hard time finding people who know what you're on about (for LBSs, you might want to try Dr Spoke on Asogatan or Cykellabbet on, I think, Kocksgatan if you're in the Stockholm region).
    2: I've been messengering in Tallinn for a while, but I still keep in touch with most of the Swedish FG riders through a mailing list I set up last year - e-mail me (jacob at jacob dot net) and I'll add you. For the Copenhagen scene, try www.cph-fxt.ownsthis.com.

    The copenhagen area is better than stockholm as itīs alot closer to me and my family lives there so Iīm more "at home" there than Stockholm.
