The Machine Translation Page

These pages documents how to build translation programs using giellalt language models and the Apertium MT infrastructure. The focus is on translation from North, Lule and South Saami to Norwegian, between North Saami and Finnish, and between Saami languages, but the documentation is relevant for any language pair. Giellatekno and Divvun cooperates with Apertium on machine translation.
