Dictionary


It's hard to navicate in the sites of foreign Post offices, cause the languages are so different.
Maybe we could put here a dictionary of the keywords?

So please join, if your language doesn't show here allready.
And you can put all the words you think are important. And also ask for others to put words you need to know.

I'll start with finnish keywords.

stamp = postimerkki
postcard = postikortti
cancellation = postileima
post office = postitoimisto
envelope = kirjekuori
sender = lähettäjä
receiver = vastaanottaja
return to sender = palautetaan lähettäjälle
postal code = postinumero
1st class = 1. luokka
2nd class = 2.luokka
air mail = lentoposti
mail box = postilaatikko

from... = -lta (for example nezzukalta)
to....... = -lle (for example nezzukalle)

A little error correction:

cancellation means "Absage, Annullierung" in travel agencies and air traffic f.e. Here it should be translated as "Stempel, Stempelung"
First and Second class mail doesn't exist in Germany.
