I will not convert to firmware but to a simulator...
Setup a virtual machine with linux and the proper toolchain
and do a "make simu PCB=TARANIS" in the src dir.
Then launch ./simu

Your best option is to start out with the Swedish language files and translate the file se.h.txt into Finnish. Alternatively you can rename your modified en.h file to se.h.txt. When you have set up the compilation environment you can then compile your modified Swedish version and get a Finnish translation.
The reason to use the Swedish language files rather than the English, is that the Swedish translation will give you access to the letters ä and ö. These are not available if you use English as base.
Setting up the compilation environment is not trivial if you are not a developer. If you have some prior experience it is however doable.
You could naturally run a Linux distribution in a virtual machine. I prefer using real machines. Linux is very efficient and is able to run on old hardware and there are a lot of obsolete machines available. I'm currently using Linux Mint with the Cinnamon desktop on an old Lenovo Thinkpad T60 and it works just fine for developing and maintaining OpenTX.
