Test of google translate

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. The procedure; All -08 380 Phantom Race number 040 on surfboards will be exchanged for the new in spring -09. The boards will come to us in April / May. Exchange applies only to hull.

  1. Har du en Phantom 380 i dag och vad tycker du i så fall om den, egenskaper, jämförelser osv?

    Jag seglar oftast Formula men när det är lätta vindar seglar jag på en Serenity. Om man korsar dessa två så har man en Phantom 380! 😉
    Det vore mysigt med EN bräda som kan allt…
