a new service (...) has been adopted.


(...) when millions/billions of people were trying to buy tickets at the same time.

Your log is my main source of news, lol.

btw now that I think of it - have you tried Iversen-style hyperliteral translations? you might find them useful:)))
you could list fixed expressions like yhtä aikaa along with the vocabulary you learn.

Hmm, I haven't really tried hyperliteral. I feel like these selkouutiset news articles actually translate pretty directly.   Maybe with more complex sentences this would be useful.

I should try hyperliteral translation of Japanese. With the longer sentences, it would come out truly bizarre.

otti kiinni is another fixed expression.
ummm tbh i wouldn't say most of these are direct translations. i'm always wondering whether it's because you're making sure this sounds good in English or there's also some confusion sometimes.
now that i think of it, an important benefit of hyperliteral vs literary translations is that you get used to understanding the meaning without needing to express it as a proper sentence in your L1. the next step will be understanding without any sort of translations :-)

Oh yeah, thanks. This is on www.sanakirja.org/search.php?id=51541&l2=3

ottaa kiinni=catch/aprehend

I'm sure there's massive confusion on my part, due to the fact that I'm still beginner level in this language. I assume a hyper-literal would use some kind of notation or something.
