Our professional linguists include native Maori speakers who are experienced in the nuances of the language and the requirements of effective translation and interpreting.
Maori is an Eastern Polynesian subgroup of the Eastern Austronesian (Oceanic) languages. It is spoken in the Cook Islands and New Zealand. Maori is also New Zealand’s official language.
New Zealand was the last Polynesian island to be settled (about 800 AD). Since then, Maori has evolved independently of other Polynesian languages.
Maori currently has between 100,000 and 150,000 speakers.
