Te Reo Maori added to Microsoft Translater
Microsoft has added te reo Māori to its Microsoft Translator application, enabling instant translations of text from more than 60 languages into te reo Māori and vice versa.
Microsoft president Brad Smith says to focus only on shaping the future ignores the value of the past, and the company had a responsibility to preserve and celebrate the te reo Māori heritage.
The free Translator software will be widely available on computers or smart devices.
Microsoft has been working with language experts on projects that include te reo Māori in its platforms and software for more than 14 years.
The translation model employed for te reo Māori will use Microsoft’s AI technology, which will allow the accuracy of the translations to be continually updated and refined.
