Hello everyone! Since there is no neat one-to-one correspondence between english and swedish prepositions, I would like to use this thread as a discussion for possible translations and check if my attempted translation of prepositional phrases are appropriate.

I would like to start off with a translation of this sentence: 'In the president's place, the foreign minister will represent the country at the meeting.'

ATTEMPT: I presidentens ställe, ska utrikesminister representera landet på mötet.

Except for a missing n at the end of utrikesminister, it looks fine to me.

As a follow up, is 'in the last 2 years' translated as 'i sista två år'?
