[OS X TeX] Hyphenation patterns in TeXShop

Here is what I remember from when I asked this question concerning Dutch.
In order to activate hyphenation patterns you have to modify the 
language.dat file and rebuild the formats.
The language.dat file is located in: 
If you open it, you will see that it contains the line: %swedish 
Uncomment and save.
Then in the terminal run: fmtutil --all (you need administrator 
priviliges for this). This rebuilds the formats with the new 
language.dat file, pre-loading the Swedish hyphenation patterns. You 
can then use them with the babel package.
Disadvantage of this procedure is that you modify the standard teTeX 
tree, which means that your modified language.dat gets overwritten if 
you install a new teTeX.
