Hello and thanks for turning to Lawline for help!
As you've noticed the "personnummer" is very important for the everyday life and it is crucial that your wife receives her number as fast as possible. Skatteverket is obligated to make a decision regarding her application. I would therefore recommend you to, as a first step, contact Skatteverket and ask them what happened to her application. There could be something wrong or something missing that just needs to be solved before giving your wife her personnummer. For example ask them if they have your correct adress and phone number. If the communication is hard due to language barriers you almost definately have the right to a translator in this case (13 § of The Administrative Procedure Act from 2017)
I hope you got your questioned answered!
