Information about Finland shared through an open API in many languages
“We hope that Infopankki materials will be used to create applications that serve the information needs of immigrants in different languages. For example, a Chinese application developer could create an application that gives its users easy access to the information they need about Finland,” says Editor-in-Chief Eija Kyllönen-Saarnio from the City of Helsinki. Through the open interface, Infopankki information can also be displayed in other services.
Infopankki is collecting user requests about the use of multilingual materials at https://padlet.com/infopankki/api.
The languages of the service are Finnish, Swedish, English, Russian, Estonian, French, Somali, Spanish, Turkish, Chinese, Persian and Arabic. The language versions are identical in content.
The Infopankki website is published by the City of Helsinki and funded by the Finnish state and municipalities. The information is updated constantly in co-operation with the authorities.
