Hi Ritva! I saw you were just on so thought I would see if I could catch you. I sent an e-mail to your e-mail address. I don't know if you check it very often. My daughter is looking for some help translating a few sentences from English to Finnish and then answering a few questions about the meaning in Finnish. It is for a paper she is writing on linguistics. It should only take about 15 minutes and be fairly easy. She is very short on time as she has to have the paper finished within a week. Let me know if you would be able to help her & I will forward the info. If not, that is fine also.

Hi joyfotos! I'm so sorry my email doesn't work - the one in my front page :O It should, but just tried and it didn't! Well, here is another one: ippa1212 (at), please try that :) Ippa

joyfotos on April 10, 2010

Thanks Ippa! I just called my daughter to send me the info so I can e-mail it to you. Seeing it is morning here it may take a bit to hear back but I will send it off to you as soon as I get it.


Ritva Astikainen on April 10, 2010

Ok joyfotos :) Cheers!

joyfotos on April 10, 2010

Ok...she finally responded. I think I will give her your e-mail address vs being in the middle. That way if either of you have questions it will go faster. Thanks again!

Don't mention it :)
