He taonga te reo Māori

Te reo Māori is a taonga

Te reo Māori is a taonga and is protected under Te Tiriti o Waitangi. 'Kia Mauri Ora te Reo' is the Māori and Crown shared vision for the Māori language. Te Māngai Pāho supports that vision through the work it does and its mission, ‘Ahakoa kei whea, ahakoa āwhea, ahakoa pēwhea, kōrerotia te reo Māori’ (Māori language – every day, every way, everywhere!). The goal of ReoAko is to contribute to the revitalisation of te reo Māori by supporting and encouraging Crown entities and businesses to use te reo Māori on their websites.

Te mahi a ReoAko

How ReoAko works

ReoAko interface

Your website users can click on kupu Māori created by the ReoAko plugin to listen to the words spoken in te reo and view the English translation.

Content Management System

ReoAko is designed to integrate into content management systems to enable you to translate English words into kupu Māori on your website easily.

Te reo Māori library

ReoAko contains a curated list of translations selected from Te Aka Māori Language Dictionary. The size of the library can grow with your organisational capability and content needs.

Features

Guidance for content editors

Te Māngai Pāho, with the support of appropriate language expertise, has developed a user guide and support plan for website managers and editors. This guidance creates a seamless onboarding process and helps editors choose the right te reo Māori words to use on their websites.

Curated list of kupu

For organisations with little te reo Māori capability, the available kupu are limited to Māori words already in wide use, e.g. mahi/work. As needs and capacity grow, so can ReoAko. We encourage organisations to seek out the services and support of a language consultant to ensure the integration of te reo Māori is seamless and correct.

API

The curated list of kupu is accessed through an API, which is powered by Te Aka Māori Language Dictionary. There are over 32,000 entries available in Te Aka.

Support for content management systems

The ReoAko API can be used by almost all content management systems. Octave supports plugins for Wagtail, Silverstripe, Drupal and Contentful. We welcome the development of plugins for other content management systems.

Accessibility

ReoAko interface meets the New Zealand Government accessibility standard —The New Zealand Web Accessibility Standard 1.1, making sure te reo Māori is accessible to all.

Interface customisation

ReoAko inherits your website’s fonts, and the interface can be visually customised to fit your website by editing its CSS.

Technical Documentation

Comprehensive documentation is available to help your developers get ReoAko operational with a minimum amount of effort.

Weaving te reo Māori into everyday life of all New Zealanders

ReoAko equips any organisation to play a part in revitalising te reo Māori in Aotearoa. Everyday activities online – like reading the news, checking the weather, logging into your bank, checking the opening hours of a local business – can become infused with kupu Māori through ReoAko.

Due to the ReoAko approach of weaving kupu Māori into English content, te reo can be introduced to New Zealanders in an easy, educative and interactive way. This approach also broadens the audience to everyone, not just those fluent or actively engaged in seeking out te reo content.
