I translated http://www.polkupyoraily.net/osm/ into English and German.
Any suggestions for improvement are welcome, as are and any translations
for minority languages spoken in Finland: se, sv, et, ru at least.

I also composed a table of some slightly funny POI menu positions.
Funnily, the German menu for amenity=recycling says Versorgung, the
opposite of Entsorgung (disposal).

Best regards,
