Let's start here

The Finnish language —along with the Hungarian and Estonian languages—belongs to the Uralic/Yukaghir language family. Under the Uralic language family, Finnish falls under the Finno-Ugric group. Although Finnish is one of the official languages of the European Union, it is only a native language to approximately one percent of the EU population (about 5 million people).

Finland is made up of 95% of the Finnish speaking population. The remaining Finnish speakers are in territories that use Finnish as an official minority language such asdesignated regions in Sweden, Karelian-Russia and most of the regions north of Norway.

There aretwo versions of the modern Finnish language: written and spoken. Prior to going to school, all Finnish speaking children learn a spoken version of Finnish called puhekieli, which has regional dialectal differences.  Written Finnish, kirjakiel, isn’t learned until children start school. Kirjakiel is literally translated as “book language.”

All major written forms of communication are written in kirjakiel, but common communications—including social media communications and television shows—use puhekieli. When translating English to Finnish, translators need to be aware of both types of Finnish and whether the written material warrants the more formal version of the language (i.e., as in legal documents) or the less formal version of the language (i.e., as in email memos).
