    Hej! ‘att släcka’ and ‘att stänga av’ mean the same and you can use them interchangeably?

      The verb “släcka” means “extinguish” or to “put out a light or a fire”, and you can for example say “släck elden” – “put out the fire”. You also use it for lights and candles, and that’s why you can say “släck ljusen” – “turn off the lights”. The verb “stänga av” means to “turn off”, and you can use it with any kind of device or engine – “jag stängde av TVn”, “stäng av mobilen!”, “han stängde av motorn”.
