# Single letter with a different language

in my report I have to write the city word Umeå once. I have included \usepackage[english,swedish]{babel} but the result is

Not exactly right :/ Is it possible to just write the letter Å without including Swedish in babel?

The packages used in the report is

\documentclass[paper=a4, fontsize=11pt]{scrartcl} % A4 paper and 11pt font size
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{fourier}
\usepackage[english,swedish]{babel}
\usepackage{amsmath,amsfonts,amsthm}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{caption}
\usepackage{array}
\usepackage{verbatim}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usepackage{changepage}
\usetikzlibrary{decorations.pathreplacing}
\usetikzlibrary{calc}
\usepackage{sectsty}
\allsectionsfont{\centering \normalfont\scshape}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\pagestyle{fancyplain}

• Your file is probably UTF-8 encoded and you have \usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}. Change latin1 into utf8. No need to enable Swedish. – egreg Apr 13 '16 at 20:58
• Sorry. I don't have that package. See my question amended with all the packages included in the document. – Orongo Apr 13 '16 at 21:00
• Then add \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}. And remove swedish. – egreg Apr 13 '16 at 21:03

Here's a minimal example reproducing the problem.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\begin{document}
Umeå \textsc{Umeå}
\end{document}


The file was saved as UTF-8 and the output is

Change it to

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\begin{document}
Umeå \textsc{Umeå}
\end{document}


and you'll get

There is no need to load babel-swedish for typesetting the character å.

• I changed but get compile error. "! Package babel Error: You haven't loaded the option swedish yet. See the babel package documentation for explanation. Type H <return> for immediate help. ... l.3 \select@language{swedish} ? " – Orongo Apr 13 '16 at 21:15
• @Orongo That's a temporary error, because you disabled a language. Remove the .aux file and retry. – egreg Apr 13 '16 at 21:23
• question shows small caps. should get equivalent result with what you've answered, but it would be nice to see it. – barbara beeton Apr 14 '16 at 2:39

• @Orongo How about \r{a} or even better \aa? I can find that on the linked page. – Johannes_B Apr 14 '16 at 8:20
