** now added features to translate any language to any language...
This application should be useful for people learning Finnish. I've uploaded it because it's been really useful for me...
It uses Google Translate to load 5 common news urls in Finnish. The page displays in Finnish, you can then get a translation of that paragraph by highlighting it.
FinnGo allows you to view web pages without using your browser (allows you to have more windows open). It also allows you to navigate quickly over to some of the other pages (Google Translate is great, but sometimes the translation from Finnish is not that great - as all Finnish learners will know, it's a very tough language to learn! So this feature allows you to pass over to another page if the first page is too hard to understand.)
When the page loads, scroll down in the web window (and the Google Translate bit will scroll off the screen).
Future versions will allow configurable URLs and languages (I've included a to-do list on the help page so you can see what else I plan to do).
For advanced Finnish readers, check out Suomen Sanomalehdet on Android Market. I'm not associated with it at all but it has a wider selection of Finnish media.
Some keywords: suomea, finnish, Sanomalehdet, selkouutiset, google translate, sampo, nordea, stockmann.
