Unfortunately most finns doing woodworking are over 50 and don't speak
english at all (German language was more popular than English then
and many don't speak foreign languages at all, this Pekka is evidently
at least able to read English [most finns are better with writen English
than spoken]). Automatic translators don't
(and can't, IMO) work with our language due to several reasons:
1) we use suffixes instead of prepositions.
2) the body of a word can change with suffixes
3) no future tense
4) lots of compound nouns
This same guy has made his own table saw/sanding machine and a sharpening
Tretty impressive, I think.
My mother's family spoke Finnish. They used it as code so the kids
couldn't listen in on their "adult-talk" (much more permanent than s-p-
e-l-l-i-n-g). She was the last of the family and none of the
grandchildren spoke it, by design, so that was the end of it.
