Not sure if cheap, or if they issue a certificate (they should, but check with them), a service called 9lives keeps on advertising here and in FB corona tests for 45 eur (in reality it can be around 200 under normal circunstances). This is in Hki, city center.

The best way is to go to private clinic e.g Mehilainen or Terveystalo. It costs about 50eur for the test and 250eur for certificate translated in English. Public healthcare centers may give you appointment to a quick test if you have symptoms but results will be informed via SMS and no document provided.

What of the situation getting the certificate in Swedish? Is that going to affect the price?

Currently, this seems to be the least expensive testing place.

Why a certificate in English would not work instead of Swedish?

Is it possible to get the certificate in Swedish free of charge since I am planning to go to Sweden?

To my knowledge, any certificate costs no matter in which language. I am pretty sure Sweden would accept certificates in English as well.
But check their website or call them.
