Translocalis - Local letters in the press



Translocalis is a digital database for reader letters written in different locations and published in Finnish papers up to the year 1885. The Translocalis database contains 72 000 reader letters from Finland and abroad. In the name of the collection, trans refers to an object going over or through something and localis refers to a space or location. Combined, Translocalis expresses something more than local, which these local letters represented. The Finnish-speaking press started out on a nation-wide level and became more regional and local only during the latter half of the 19th century.
