In this paper, we present a quantitative evaluation of differences between alternative translations in a large recently released Finnish paraphrase corpus focusing in particular on non-trivial variation in translation. We combine a series of automatic steps detecting systematic variation with manual analysis to reveal regularities and identify categories of translation differences. We find the paraphrase corpus to contain highly non-trivial translation variants difficult to recognize through automatic approaches.
