I am looking for something like in this PICTURE.
Ideally with both languages, Swedish and English.
Anything to suggest?

My idea was more of a complete visual dictionary.
Useful to build up the "vocabulary" skill, in my opinion.

Puffin posted this http://www.thelocal.se/discuss/index.php?s...p;p=498436& many moons ago, and while the links are now broken, you can find the content at http://www.student.nada.kth.se/skolverket/...ik/1998-10.html Click on the red numbers 1 to 33 down the page under "Olika bildteman". They are jpgs you can copy and print out. )The point of the picture is that you don't need English)

Further research.
Aha - Google is wonderful. Just Google "bildteman lexin" and browse to your hearts content. Lots of languages. Enjoy !

I like this one:
http://www.norstedts.se/bocker/utgiven/200...dordbok-ovrigt/
It passed my 'dictionary test' of having marulk/monkfish in it.

Handy should you need to know what a louvred window, pulmonary artery, inlet manifold, semiquaver, batter's helmet, life support system controls (on a spacesuit) etc etc etc are in Swedish.

Or you can just give up, and point at the picture (good with all things plumbing/electrical!)

Not sure why there's a picture of a Parmesan cheese in there though (that'd be parmesan in Swedish).

Thank you for the very useful hint as well.
This seems very nice for being interactive and with pronunciation!

This seems like something I can use too, when far from a computer. Very good, thank you!

Look at Rosetta. That is based on pictures and words. It has mixed reviews, but it might be want you want.
