I'm building an Estes Photon Probe and my wife remarked, in passing, that it "looks Swedish." I thought I'd run with it and print some Swedish Air Force insignia, etc. to decorate.

I'm wondering what the Swedish translation of "Photon Probe" would be. I can type it into an online translator and I get "foton" and "sond" for the two words. But I'm only guessing that the correct phrase would be "foton sond" -- probably that's an English construction.

Can anyone familiar with Swedish syntax tell me the correct phrase for "a spaceship meant to probe photons" or "photon probe"?

Thanks in advance

Jef snakker litt svensk eller norsk. Min far alltid sa "Ten thousand Swedes ran through the weeds, chased by one Norwegian!"
Lol!

My understanding is that the Nordic peoples are all very similar. A Norwegian is about the same as a Swede, except the Norwegian has his brains smashed in!

In the USA, we don't speak English. We speak American.

Not one of the ten thousand Swedes wanted to be friends with the lonely Norwegian? Poor them, I know how having no social skills feels too.

Autism? If so, welcome to the club.

It's too bad you feel that way. I've gotten a lot of enjoyment from studying different languages. It has helped me appreciate the English language more, learn about different cultures and become more open minded. It has literally enriched my life.

Proto-Indo-European for life, none of that Finno-Ugric nonsense in here ( I'm looking at you, Hungary ).
