Our Swedish Academy word of the day is ‘renommé’ which means reputation, repute, good name or renown according to Nordstedts Swedish-English dictionary.
Swedish sample sentence: Arbetsgivaren hade gott renommé bland sina anställda.
English translation: The employer had a good reputation with their employees.
Swedish sample sentence: Sveriges renommé inom vetenskapliga kretsar ökade ytterligare efter covid-19.
Englis translation: Sweden’s good name in the world of science was boosted further after COVID-19.
Questions to contemplate: Is a good reputation important to me? Is it more important professionally than in my private life? If so, why? What would I like to be remembered for when I have passed away?
Quote of the day:
A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches,Proverbs 22:1
Loving favor rather than silver and gold.
