If I were talking about the twelfth side of a die, would that also be sidan tolv?
No, that would be den tolfte sidan. (Yes, it's spelled with an f, it's weird but at least it's phonetically right.)
Okay, thanks! :)
Vända till sidan 394...
In Swedish the instruction would usually be "slå upp sidan 394".
Why literal translation didn't work here? The page twelve.
