    There is a universal language that most Skandanavians understand, it's called "English" :)

    Hi Teppo! There's Swedish, sort of Swedish and those guttural sounds you finns do. Only the first one is a proper language ;)

    Are you coming back to Tuna anytime soon by the way Teppo?

    ps: English is fine for at the very least 90% of travelling Scandinavians. The net effect of Scandinavian menus might very well be a loss, I know a lot of people who'll think "that's just too touristy" and go somewhere else when they see signs and menus in Swedish abroad.

    Well,
    True in general terms... however when it comes to special food terms like sirloin, mutton, veal, seabass, raspberry, asparagus and words like this the count is probably down to as little as 15% or less. If you mean that swedes understand a hamburger menu in english you're probably right.

    Anyway, I think I might be able to help with a swedish translation.

    Finland is not part of Sweden or Scandinavia.
    Perrrkele. Not guttural but tongue sound!!!

    You may hide the finnish meny and use it when needed. Let the Swedish to play as they like.

    Coming to Tuna as well... one day...
    How do you translate/explain Tuna as I always think of canned food?

    Tuna should be something similar in meaning to the english word town, I wouldn't be surprised if it's actually the same word exported by our viking forefathers.
