Not exactly : swedish patterns *must* have been loaded in the latex format
file when it were generated...

For instance I don't have these patterns in my format file, here is what I
got with


This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159-1.00b-pretest-20020211 (Web2C 7.3.7x)
LaTeX2e <2001/06/01>
Babel <v3.7h> and hyphenation patterns for english, dumylang, nohyphenation,
german, ngerman, french, ukenglish, greek, italian, latin, dutch, polish,
russian, ukrainian, loaded.
Document Class: article 2001/04/21 v1.4e Standard LaTeX document class



Package babel Warning: No hyphenation patterns were loaded for
(babel)                the language `Swedish'
(babel)                I will use the patterns loaded for \language=0
