Wow, that was fast, thank you so much! :)

I just looked up the words, so my conclusion was:

"Eallin leat (to be) čáppat"...!? I guees "lea" is the declined form of leat!?

could you also use "fávru" instead of "čáppat"? or does this mean more like handsome/pretty?

Thanks so much again!

Exactly. :D

Well, I'm no native speaker, but I don't think that "fávru" would fit to describe life.

I just found a great etymology-based database for Saami (and other Uralic) languages, including proto-languages and less common languages like Akkala Saami, Ume Saami, Nganasan, Mator, Ludic (Lydian), etc:
Álgu at the Kotimaisten Kielten Keskus - Institute for Languages of Finland
It takes data from a wide variety of sources, so orthography and reliability are inconsistent. But for some of the lesser-known languages it's one of the best databases I've seen so far.
