English to Māori Translation Services
Māori, known also as Te Reo and Te Reo Māori, is one of the three official languages of New Zealand. As the largest indigenous language of New Zealand, with more than 25,000 speakers, Māori bears special culture significance in the country. In fact, there’s been a strong revitalization movement and increased use in recent years, similar to with Welsh and Cree. And although almost all Māori speakers can also use English, you can stand out by communicating in the language many prefer and connect with more personally.
Māori belongs to the Oceanic branch of the Austronesian language family. This makes it closer to Hawaiian and Marshallese and more distantly related to Indonesian and Tagalog. Māori uses many grammatical particles to indicate information including verb tense, mood, aspect, location, possession, and topic-marking. Additionally, the language has multiple ways to express possession that emphasize the relationship between the owner and the object. As challenging as Māori translation may be, our seasoned team has years of experience and will ensure you receive English to Māori translations that are accurate, natural, and true to the original text.
