@mrpn900: If "Suomi" is the correct entry for Finnish, then yes, it is included.
I attached 3 screenshots showing all the included languages. I hope it helps other users with the same question about their language, too.

thank's a lot! General version did not include Suomi, so I have to reflash with the German version.

I don't think there was a changelog published, but the main difference is the "Channel" -> while the C232 Versions are for "general channel" i.e. the international version of the ROM, this ROM is C167 "German Channel" - probably some settings are included for german SIMcards / WiFi Channels? (Please correct me if I'm wrong)
Before I flashed this ROM I was on HUAWEI_S7-301u_FIRMWARE_android4.0_C232B002_General_Channel_ 05010YBX-root - the main difference I noticed during the last 3 days of usage was better batterylife. While on the old ROM (C232) I had a batterydrain of 1% per hour in standby, this ROM (C167) is really good in that regard. Around 1% batterydrain during 10 hours of Standby is more than acceptable, imho.

Huawei cloud apps are not included in the German Channel release.

BTW: The official download link is http://huaweidevices.de/download.php?d=mediapad&f=Huawei_Mediapad_ICS_FIRM WARE(S7-301u_andr4.0.3_C167B003_German_Vers).zip

There is a pre-rooted version uploaded by Comec (all credit to him) in the German android-hilfe.de MediaPad subforum:

Huawei_Mediapad_ICS_FIRMWARE(S7-301u_andr4.0.3_C167B003_German_Vers)_ROOT.part2.ra r

Huawei_Mediapad_ICS_FIRMWARE(S7-301u_andr4.0.3_C167B003_German_Vers)_ROOT.part1.ra r

Changes to the rom: rooted, SuperUser.apk, init.d support, support for German keyboard layout for external devices.

Use at your own risk! Works as normal dload update. MediaPad will be reset to factory defaults. Save your app-data.
