sadly, "joined up thinking" doesn't work between babel and bibtex :-(
(internationalisation remains the biggest unsolved issue in tex, imo.)

the custom-bib system has a means of translating its stuff, but (a) i
don't know how it works, and (b) it doesn't seem to do swedish (says
he, guessing what your chosen language might be).

there's a set of translations of the latex standard styles in the
swebib package (in the miktex package system under that name -- just
ask for it).  that gives you swe(abbrv|alpha|plain).bst -- would that

sorry.  added to the ever-growing list of answers i need to write.

swebib _is_ in the ctan catalogue, so you might just have found it
that way.
