Duos planning a heist

Why are both spellings correct here?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Zmrzlina

Which both? I don't see what your alternatives were.

Vakterna and Väkterna


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Zmrzlina

Oh, alright. Vakterna and väktarna (notice spelling!) both translate to guard. Whereas vakt is any kind of guard, väktare is however a regulated profession of private security guards with rights to carry a baton and handcuffs and the like.

How is this sentence connected with topic called «food»? (:

Duolingo is having problems sticking strictly to the lesson you're doing.

    why some sentences like this isn't contains år


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/devalanteriel

    Swedish doesn't have continuous, so "are coming" and "come" both translate to kommer.
