In my time of trying to teach myself Norwegian, I have become accustomed to the fact that Google Translate can’t handle how some words in other languages are compound words.

In this case, knäskadad is one of them. When playing with the word, I learned that knä skadad is the likely term, as Google accepted it as a translation for “damaged knee” which is exactly what Edler’s injury was.

So you’re right. Injury. smile

I should note here, that using Google Translate as a sole method of learning a foreign language is ill-advised. However, it has often pointed me in the right direction, without actually providing an answer for me.

That’s exactly what I mean. Google Translate is good to point you in the right direction, but they are in no way the gospel of translating all languages.

Just a decent tool to help out.

(Swedish, while next on my list of languages to tackle, is largely unknown to me)
