This document describes how to localize GNU/Linux for Finnish users and is intended to replace Pekka Taipale's original Finnish-HOWTO which has not been updated for some time. This document derives from original Finnish HOWTO and more importantly from the Danish-HOWTO by Niels Kristian Bech Jensen.

Language of the HOWTO is Finnish. Non-Finnish users should consult Danish HOWTO which is not in Danish but in English.
