Lagom

Updated: 2017-03-27.

Lagom is an untranslatable Swedish concept. In Swedish tradition, lagom is quite important; loosely translated, it means something along the lines of “just the right amount” or “in moderation.” A Swedish-to-English dictionary might define lagom as “sufficient” or “just right,” yet these are inadequate definitions for this complex idea.
