Can you translate this for me?

Indie.nu har VM-uppehåll

Kom tillbaka om ett tag!



I know their server is down and I need to come back later... but does it say when? Does it say why the server is down? Are they upgrading? What's wrong with my favorite Internet radio station?

it generally says that Indie.nu has an interruption/delay/breakdown, and to return in '1 day' ('ett tag')

i think it says to come back in a little while, not "one day". day is Tag in german, but dag in swedish (and i got 'while' from http://lexin.nada.kth.se/swe-eng.shtml).

Interesting.



I actually have a Swedish (I guess?) coffee substitute in my cupboard called "Svenska", so I wasn't actually thinking of the language when I clicked on this thread, I was wondering if you needed the coffee can translated...



Glad someone was able to help!

I've never heard that 'tag' would mean 'day'. Like said, 'en dag' is a day.
