Is ungarna different from ungdomarna?

Yup:

  • ungarna = the children
  • ungdomarna = the youths

But the sentence says youngsters.

Well, I was answering the question above. :) But yes, you're right of course. "Youngster" could mean either a child or a youth.

‘The young judges’…?

If you come to understand the word "youngster" you will stop trying to convince us Swede's use "ungdomarna" as an equivalent. Kanshe ni vill ge oss "whipper snappers" som en alternativ okså?
