[done] Translation, English, Finnish Quote · reply

- rMain_CalcResult='Only %d valid word found which score with|Out of %d possible words found the best would score with';//+' '+rMain_Points;
Is with a needed word?

- rMain_TimePenaltyMsg='One minute has been added to %s time for %d point (%d times left)|One minute has been added to %s time for %d points (%d times left)';
Is (%d times left) always in plural? Why?

In Board Configuration->board size the Finnish (old) translation is longer than the English text. It is partly written over by the size box. Is this just caused by the old translation?

All text behind // is a comment, meaning the resource rMain_Points is attached to the final string.

Plural or not is up to you. I didn't pluralized this part because it would result in a strange concatenation. You may translate it as "%d x left" to be safe.

Those alignments are not easy to set and need explicit calculation. I will add it at this particular page in the future.

I didn't put my question clearly, sorry.

- rMain_CalcResult='Only %d valid word found which score with|Out of %d possible words found the best would score with';//+' '+rMain_Points;
Is with a needed word?

->I mean:
"the best would score with x points"
should be
"the best would score x points"

"To score with" means to please someone.

Oh (I removed the "with" from "English UK" for the next lang release)
