Please have a look on below hreflang tag signal which i gave

<link rel="alternate" hreflang="sv" href="https://www.domain.com/sv/">
<link rel="alternate" hreflang="en" href="https://www.domain.com/en/">

After giving above hreflang tag in website.it was successfully showing like this in webmaster tool

For main domain 26 Hreflang Tags 0 Hreflang Tags with Errors
sub domain(1) - 18 Hreflang Tags 0 Hreflang Tags with Errors
sub domain (2 )- 16 Hreflang Tags 0 Hreflang Tags with Errors

The hreflang attribute (also referred to as rel="alternate" hreflang="x" ) tells Google which language you are using on a specific page, so the search engine can serve that result to users searching in that language.
