Swedish-Romani Glossary is a collection of glossaries between Swedish and different Romani dialects. The glossaries are made with the aim of aiding individuals who need to orientate in Swedish society. Certain words and terms are unique to Swedish society in particular and therefore require specific translations to Romani.

They dialects of romani included in the dataset are Arli, Kalo, Kelderasch and Lovari. There is a total of 14 glossaries included in the dataset. Some glossaries only contain Swedish and single Romani dialects while others include Swedish and multiple romani dialects combined into one file.
