The Māori Language Commission has released a list of words to support translators and others who are fighting COVID-19 and communicating in te reo Māori.

"Across the country translators are working hard to ensure our communities who speak te reo are informed and able to stay home, save lives and fight COVID-19," said Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori chief executive, Ngahiwi Apanui.

"We may be physically far apart, but thanks to our iwi radio stations, Māori TV, Te Karere and other social media forums: our people are united in our fight against Mate Korona: Coronavirus."

ME WHAKAPUTA INĀIANEI

Kua puta i Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori tētahi rārangi kupu hei taunaki i ngā kaiwhakamāori me ētahi hoa e whawhai ana i te Mate Korona mā te tuku whakapāpātanga i te reo Māori.

"Huri noa i te motu e pōkai kaha ana ngā kaiwhakamāori kia mārama ai ngā hapori kōrero Māori ki ngā kōrero matua, arā he noho kāinga, he oranga tangata tae atu hoki ki te whawhai i te Mate Korona e ora ai te tangata," te kī a te tumuaki o Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori, a Ngahiwi Apanui.

"Ahakoa tawhiti ā - tinana tātou i a tātou, e honoa ana tātou e ngā reo irirangi ā-iwi, e Whakaata Māori, e Te Karere me ētahi kaupapa pae pāpāho pāpori; e tū kotahi ana tō tātou iwi i te whawhai ki te Mate Korona."
