pivot language

A language used in machine translation as an intermediate step in the translation from the source language (SL) to the target language (TL) in the event that there is no bilingual engine directly between SL and TL. For example there might not be a bilingual Maltese to Finnish model, as so English is used as the pivot language. I.e. MT >>> EN >>> FI.
