[put at-character here]Juha-Matti I was really surprised when I translated it the first time from Finnish to French too.
Anyway, 3 people only, it's doesn't look an high number. In France there is at least 20 drivers, still driving today btw.

(other "btw": updates of Street View in Europe will come before the end of March)

I bet it was first written in English then they used Google Translation to translate it into Finnish. That's why it sounds good in the reverse translation sense :-D
Juha, does the Finnish version of the text "sounds" Finnish or is it bad written in your language?

Haha Tom, try this, translate something into english from your native french, then into german, then reverse the steps.

It doesn't come out any better if it was :D

TOMHTML & James: Exactly, the quality is absolutely very good!

The site Mol.fi is the service of Ministry of Employment and the Economy and I don't believe it was written in English first. However, the link doesn't work any more :(
