Some of the hardest things to translate..

….are everyday things like recipes, knitting patterns, and clothing catalogues. I do not translate them for my work but when I first came to Sweden I really battled to understand things like this that I needed on a day to day basis.

I have always found it so cute that the Swedish word for kitten heels is taxklack which, directly translated, means daschund heels.

The blog below (address in pic) has nice visual aids  if you need to translate anything fashion-wise from your language to English.
