Translating from a majority language into several minority languages implies duplicating both translation and terminology work. Our assumption is that a manual translation into one of the languages, and machine translation from this one into the other ones, will both cut translation time and be beneficial for work on terminology. We test the functionality of North Saami as a pivot language, with subsequent machine translation into South, Lule and Inari Saami.
