Malay translators

Each translation of the Treaty and Te Tiriti was drafted by a minimum of three translators. These translators first worked individually, and then together, to create the translations of the Treaty and Te Tiriti. These translations were then reviewed by independent reviewers to ensure the highest possible quality.

All of the Malay translators are listed in the Treaty Times Thirty book. Translators who chose to be included on the website are also listed below.
