your system (if properly installed in the first place) already has a
substantial bunch of stuff aimed at support of swedish.

you need to start by integrating swedish hyphenation into your system
(this may involve downloading the hyphenation patterns, a 34k file).

see http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=newlang

the actual sehyph.tex, if it's not already on your system, is to be
found at http://www.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/language/hyphenation/sehyph.tex


in your latex files, will enable fonts that will permit accents in words
with inflected characters in them.



will set up latex to use swedish conventions (including swedish words
for things like chapters).
