Stage 1: Translation

Members of the New Zealand Society of Translators and Interpreters were invited to participate in early December 2015. We then opened participation to professional translators as well as translation students after Waitangi Day 2016.

A minimum of 3 participating translators was required for any given language. This allowed us to have a variety of translations to work with in order to draft the best translations possible during phase two of the project: the collaborative stage.
