The language menu only displays languages with 80% or more non-campaign text translated. Finnish is only 56% complete. We figured it was a bit misleading to display languages with a large number of untranslated strings.

No problem :) If you're interested in working on completing the Finnish translation, we always welcome the extra help. There's also a Finnish channel on our Discord server if you want to chat with other players in Finnish.

Sure thing! Actually I did some translating a couple of years back. It would be cool to take a look at it again. I'll head to the Discord channel.
