    Hello Esko,
    hello Sami,
    recently Finnish was added to the manpages-l10n-project[1]. However,
    currently no activ translator is known and the current pages are in
    pure maintenance, as we don't speak Finnish.

    We are using po4a, compendia and other mechanism, to minimize the
    workload for translators. The pages are tailored for several
    distributions (e.g. Debian, Fedora, Archlinux) reusing translated
    parts whenever possible. And Finnish is now even in Debian
    unstable (soon testing and backports).

    We have over 100 upstreams[2], so besides maintaining the existing set
    of manpages you can easily add those which you deem important for your
    readers.

    If you are interested or if you would like to know more, please contact
    me or Mario Bl├Ąttermann (he is the maintainer of manpages-l10n).

    Also if you know other translators or suitable translation lists, please forward this e-mail or let me know their address, so I can approach those persons or lists as well.

    Thank you for reading!

    Greetings

    Helge

    [2] E.g. bsdmainutils, man-pages, findutils, glibc, many GNU ones
    (e.g. coreutils), X11, Systemd, pam, mutt, tar. And many more.
