The Machine Translation Page

Our work on machine translation is based on our grammatical analysers for Saami languages, combined with bilingual dictionaries, grammatical transfer rules and a generation component. We build translation programs from North, Lule and South Saami to Norwegian, between North Saami and Finnish, and between Saami languages. Giellatekno cooperates with Apertium on machine translation.
