As another native speaker of Finnish, I confirm that yesstr="Kyllä"
and nostr="Ei" are the correct words.
I had some doubts on whether the words should be capitalized.
Several other locales (including cs_CZ and tr_TR) use lower case
for yesstr and nostr, and "kyllä" and "ei" are normally written in
lower case in Finnish if they occur in the middle of a sentence.
However, I suppose yesstr and nostr are intended to be the entire
answer to some question asked by an application, rather than part
of a sentence, so "Kyllä" and "Ei" should be fine.
