Is it possible to use " every second Saturday" instead of "every other Saturday"?

What about "every two Saturdays"? Is it same as "every other Saturday"?

• Second is fine, two is wrong (which two?). Apr 15, 2015 at 14:31
• "every second Saturday" would imply the second Saturday of every month. IMO, "every other Saturday" does not mean the same thing as "every second Saturday". Apr 15, 2015 at 14:35
• Agreed with @Kristina . Even if it we stretch it to mean two such Saturdays occur in a 4-week period, those Saturdays must be the 2nd and the 4th; they could not be the 1st and 3rd (whereas "every other Saturday" could be either the 1st & 3rd or the 2nd & 4th, depending on when the first event happened.)

• I would find it ambiguous, since it's also likely to mean every day that's the second Tuesday of the month. Every two Saturdays just sounds weird. Apr 15, 2015 at 14:39
• I would say biweekly on Saturdays Apr 15, 2015 at 14:42
