Embodies in Swedish

I want to say that Winston embodies the values of a civilized society such as democracy, peace, freedom and love

 Winston förkroppsligar värdena för ett civiliserat samhälle såsom demokrati, fred, frihet och kärlek.

How would have rephrased it ?

January 5, 2016


The sentence is fine. Somewhat better perhaps "förkroppsligar vädena i" [i=in]. Sw does not have anything corresponding to the genetive with "of". It gets very clumsy to say "ett civiliserat samhälles värden", although it is not incorrect.

Best regards
