Abstract [en]

The chapter presents an analysis of ideology and practice in relation to the websites of five transnational companies operating in Sweden: ABB, AstraZeneca, Electrolux, Ericsson and Scania. One focus is on the companies's language practices and explicit language goals, as these are revealed on their websites; another is on their websites presentations of their corporate culture and 'ideal' employees.
