"Mister" should be accepted as well as "Mr."

Would 'have a good day' be an acceptable translation here? That would probably be a more common expression in British English.

What about "Have a nice rest of the day"? Otherwise what would be the difference with Hyvää paivää

Agree 100%. I say this all the time (native English speaker, UK) and would never say "Have a nice day" (people would think I was trying to be American). Am so surprised Duo haven't added it as a correct option, yet. Reported again 22.04.21.

"päivänjatkoa", why doesn't the last a have two dots on it? I thought if you had any dotted letters in a word, all letters that can be dotted should be dotted.

I think it's because it's two separate words smushed together. That's about as technical as I can manage :)
