Dataset: Machine Translation Between Saami Languages, 2017

Abstract

The aim of this project was to develop programs for machine translation from Northern Sami language to other Sami languages. By translating Northern Sami language into other Sami languages, the community of Sami language users may benefit from the work done on Northern Sami language. The project has also yielded new insights in the comparative syntax and vocabulary of Sami language.

Sampling Procedure

Tools and analyse programs developed to study Saami languages. The work on machine translation is based on grammatical analyses for Saami languages, combined with bilingual dictionaries, grammatical transfer rules and a generation component. Translation programs were built from North Saami to Norwegian, and between Saami languages.
