English Translation of the New Swedish Companies Act

I have checked when a translation into English of the text of the new Swedish Companies Act may be available.

The Swedish Ministry of Justice is not going to do an official translation.

However, the Swedish book publishing firm of Norstedts (in Swedish only I'm afraid) will produce an English translation, which probably will by ready sometime this spring. It will be published as part of their publication Swedish Commercial Legislation (ISBN 91-38-55182-9) but also as a separate book.
