English with Nato Standard within Marine Operations in the Swedish Armed Forces (English)
Abstract [sv]

I rapporten undersöks brukandet av engelska med NATO-standard inom den svenska militärens marina verksamheter. Anställda inom olika organisationer har intervjuats om hur det parallella brukandet av engelska med vanliga arbetsuppgifter påverkar deras förmåga att verka till önskad effekt. De intervjuade vittnar alla om en kännbar problematik gällande hur språket ska användas enligt gällande direktiv och att många problemen berör; hur språket påverkar verksamheten gällande stress, ger upphov till kommunikationsproblem, uppgifters tidsåtgång ökar och att tolkningssvårigheter uppstår, även om deras personliga arbetsuppgifter inte alltid påverkas direkt. Även möjligheter till att göra karriär påverkas negativt när språklig kompetens prioriteras och sätts mot yrkeskompetens, vilket riskerar att över tid ge en oerfarnare organisation när äldre medarbetare ej besitter samma språkliga kompetens. Olika förslag ges för hur man ska hantera engelska inom verksamheten i framtiden.

Abstract [en]

The report covers a study of the usage of English with NATO-standard within the Swedish Military’s Marine Force and Navy. Employees within different organizations have been interviewed regarding the parallell usage of the english language combined with their every-day working tasks and how the language is affecting their ability to keep on operating at a desirable level. All the interviewees have noticed a wide range of problems regarding how the language should be used according to their directives, that the problems are mainly concerning how the language is affecting their levels of stress when it creates communication problems, interpretation difficulties and makes ordinary tasks require more time to finish, even though their personal tasks might not always be affected directly. Carrier possibilities are also affected negatively, when language proficiency is prioritized over working experience and general competence, which over time could lead to a less experienced organization. A number of suggestions is given regarding how the language should be viewed upon in near the future.
