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 standardizedand 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 there is a document  to refer t,  if someone doubts about the “correct” use of these words!
