Hi all, can someone help me please?

Is there a Finnish translation for 'Ammeter' please Or the plural 'Ammeters'?

If not, what would you use instead?

Obviously this is a meter for reading current?

Best Wishes,

Hi there!

The Finnish translation for that is
"ampeerimittari". You're welcome.  ;D

Thank you for replying, but is 'ampeerimittari' singular or plural or both?

That's the singular form. The basic plural form is "ampeerimittarit", but if you need to use, say, the genitive, that would be "ampeerimittareiden" (that's the plural form, the singular form would be "ampeerimittarin"). Finnish is quite a complicated language because it uses inflections etc instead of prepositions...

we all love our possessive suffix
