Finnish translation:Hard dot ja rapid access -filmit
Explanation:

I couldn't find any Finnish equivalent for these terms. I could expect that the original terms are used professionally. In the following address:

There's an explanation:

Hard dot vs. rapid access

Hard-dot film gets its name from the exceptionally sharp, high-density halftone dot it produces. However, it requires a carefully balanced development process. With the exception of flexo operations, nearly every computer-to-film newspaper printer uses rapid-access film. That’s primarily because it is inherently faster and very forgiving in the development process, and because current imagesetting and advanced rapid-access film technology made specifically for newspaper applications work hand-in-glove to produce the desired result.

I hope that this can help you a little bit.

there for \'rapid access\' are given translations: Nopea saatavuus (pikaprosessi).

Apparently yuo can also use \'RA-prosessi\' for professionals.
