Saterland Frisian edit

Etymology edit

From Old Frisian *oversetta, from Proto-West Germanic *ubarsattjan, equivalent to uur- +‎ sätte (to set). Cognates include English overset, Dutch overzetten, and German übersetzen.

The sense "to translate" is a semantic loan from Middle Low German oversetten, itself a calque of Latin traducere.
