CLDR Ticket #3048(closed defect: fixed)

Opened 6 years ago

Last modified 5 years ago

Finnish full date formats should use stand-alone versions of the weekday names.

Reported by: maiku.fabian@… Owned by: pedberg
Component: main Data Locale:
Phase: Review: emmons
Weeks: Data Xpath:


Finnish date formats were recently improved, see


But apparently the “EEEE” in the formats, for example



is still wrong. Instead the stand-alone form should be used,

cccc d. MMMM y

“EEEE d. MMMM y” produces something like

“torstaina, heinäkuuta 01 2010”

whereas “cccc d. MMMM y” produces something like

“torstai 1. heinäkuuta 2010”

According to my Finnish colleagues, “torstaina” means something like
“On Thursday” which is wrong in this context.

Also capture in the spec that the intention for the 4 main formats is stand-alone.

Needed to fix CheckDates to allow this - in full date regex, used ((E*)|(c*)) instead of just E*

Will clarify spec separately.
