Finnish term or phrase: Jätevesistä johtuva kuormitus leviää purkupaikasta enimmäkseen koillisen–lounaan
We are having a discrepancy between our linguist and reviewer relating to the word load / kuormitus – could anyone clarify whether this is correct.

Jätevesistä johtuva kuormitus leviää purkupaikasta enimmäkseen koillisen–lounaan suuntaisesti Raahen edustan saariston länsipuolella ulkomeren puolella.

The waste water load spreads from the unloading site mostly on the northeast-lunch parallel to the west side of the Raahe archipelago, on the outer sea side.

The wastewater load spreads from the discharge point mostly in the northeast-??lunch?? (lunch =indication of machine translation) (=north-east to southwest) direction on the western side of the Raahe archipelago, in the open sea area.

agree  Susan Ruusunen: Indeed. GSI, you don't have discrepancy between a 'translator' and 'reviewer', because neither of them is a Finnish speaker, let alone professional, looks like machine translation to me, too (because of that 'lunch' translation!)
