- Te Ohu Reo request form
Te Ohu Reo is active for 2022, but currently has lower capacity to work on requests. Our typical four-week turnaround might therefore be extended, depending on the nature and volume of work needed for your request. Our aim is to complete requests as soon as we can.
The UC Te Reo Māori Style Guide is a useful document to help you add these to (e.g.) your webpages, email signatures, business cards. Your Kaiārahi can help you with pronunciation of the names relevant to your work. You can find the details of your respective Kaiārahi on our Te Waka Pākākano webpage here.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. For any urgent matters, please contact Mary Boyce: firstname.lastname@example.org
