Although I have studied Finnish in school for 10 years I don’t understand even half of the email I received couple of days ago. So you might understand why many people from Åland hesitate to do business with our mainland🙂 But with the help of Google translate I think I got most right, but it is still very difficult mainly because of very different grammar. Chinese would actually be simpler to learn I think. Main reason I post this is so I can easily check my translation with someone who knows descent Finnish. Here comes a my own translation of the mail + the google-version + the original version, some things will never get correct when having a machine translate. But I think google does a remarkable good job anyway. I might have some things wrong, at least one whole sentence I was not happy with.

Here is my own translation:
Hello! Star Board has decided to call back all the Star Board Phantom Race 380 surfboards serial number 040 onwards. Some boards has a possible production error.
