Ah I think I know why this happens, if command line is also untranslated for
you (tar, sed, apt). Try installing language-pack-fi-base and see if things
Since xfce packages moved to main their translations are stripped at build
time and put in the base language packs,
where translations for the rest of the system is. So for every locale the
specific language pack needs to be installed
to get the translations. This means they can be worked on even after dapper
release and get updated from rosetta
translations without uploading the specific xfce packages themselves.
