Your problem is not solved by using babel, which is why the output was incorrect (unless you got a specific error, babel is most probably installed on your system).

Add instead
Code:
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

LaTeX normally can only deal with the standard ASCII characters. To get, for instance, ä, you need to input
Code:
\"a
The package inputenc allows one to work with an extended characterset, such that characters like å, ä, ô, é, etc., are handled correctly.
