'Minä olen' is not accepted...

It's one month later and "Minä olen" is still not accepted. Very frustrating.

Minä olen kalassa - is correct too

As 'fishing' is kalastus/kalastaa, "Olen kalastamassa" is another common way of saying "I'm fishing".

But is "kalassa" correct? and can be used? Translator doesn't know such word...

Why "Kalastan" is wrong??

I wonder as well!

Just wondering, what if someone is literally in a fish, like Jonah in the Bible?
