Helsingin Sanomat’s International Edition went online on September 15, 1999. The site contains abstracts in English of a number of daily stories, and also a weekly digest of edited articles from the newspaper. The daily material appears Mondays through Fridays at around 13.00 local time (GMT +2 or GMT +3 in the summer months), and the weekly items are posted on the Web on Tuesday afternoons. Naturally major late-breaking stories are covered where possible outside of these hours.

The service (which does not require registration) also includes other links to sites in Helsinki and elsewhere in Finland. The accent of the bulk of the daily and weekly material is perhaps best described as “Finnish with an international dimension”, or “international with a Finnish connection”, and the weekly items feature in-depth articles by Helsingin Sanomat staffers.

The online paper offers English-speaking readers a chance to see some of the best of Helsingin Sanomat journalism. At the same time, while we do not seek to compete with the wire services on general news, we attempt to provide at least a modicum of information for English speakers locally, and therefore stories include topical items relating to Finland and the Helsinki area.
