Small but problematic – signal words into Finnish

Until now, I did not know that  the signal words “Danger”, “Warning” and “Caution” (and “Notice”)  and their translations into several languages have been standardized and also their translations into Finnish!

Danger = Vaara

Warning = Varoitus

Caution = Huomio

Notice = Huomautus

Of course we translators have often translated these signal words in this very way, but it was nice to find out that the standard versions in a document.  EDIT (2019):  In this post, there was originally a link to the document where I found these terms, but unfortunately the document has disappeared / its address has been changed since.
