Maybe you are referring to presentation ? In the 17th and 18th centuries, French was an important language. I think many of the French words that transcended national boundaries were scientific (or academic), such as presentation.
Also, if i'm not mistaken, the royal house of Sweden are French; so, there's some interesting entanglement in their histories.
I suspect Swedish borrows words, just like English does, and German, and Dutch, and and and - and I suspect there may be a """"real"""""word (with only Swedish roots) which is a near synonym of presentation - but it's no more French than the word presentation in English is a French word.
