Hi all,

One of the most annoying "features" in excel has been that excel only
recognizes the function names in the language the excel is for. I
myself have Finnish (language from Finland) excel at home and English
excel at work.

Now you can believe the mess I'm in when I have used excel at work
whole day using english functions and start to use excel at home.
That's just not very convinient. Is there any way to enable i.e.
Finnish excel to understand standard english functions?

Is there even a reference list out there where I could check what any
given english function name would be in finnish and vice versa?
