Strange Swedish translation of "Go"

The translation of "Go" in the Swedish (sv) locale is pretty strange. It says "Sök" which means "search". A few translations that I find better than "Sök" in the context (django.contrib.admin):

  1. Utför (this is arguably the best one)
  2. Gör
  3. Kör

  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Patch needs improvement unset

For non-swedish speakers:

  1. Utför is roughly equivalent to "perform"
  2. Gör is more like "do" (or "make" depending on the context)
  3. Kör is "run"

Please feel free to attach a patch for the django.po file, I don't really know what to do with the ticket.

  • Has patch set

I've got confirmation by a Swedish translation expert (Daniel Nylander) that:

"Utför" is the best in this specific context. It means "Perform" or
"Do" (the action)
