UC Kuputaka | Glossary of Bilingual Names and Terms

Te Waka Pākākano is pleased to announce an early Christmas koha (gift) for all UC whānau: a new searchable UC Kuputaka | Glossary of Bilingual Names and Terms!

The new UC Kuputaka which you will find by clicking on the tohu (icon) above adds to the reo Māori resources available, such as the recently released UC Reo Māori Style Guide, on the UC Style Guide webpage.

Designed for UC staff and students, this new UC-specific rauemi reo (resource) is a culmination of many hours of translation work completed by the UC Ohu Reo over the past 5+ years, with inclusion of some newly coined bilingual names for all UC:

  • Colleges
  • Schools
  • Departments
  • Service Units
  • Research groups
  • Academic disciplines/ subjects

We envisage this list will be updated periodically throughout the year to reflect the changing bicultural naming and nature of Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha.  Sound files to help you with your pronunciation will be added in the new year along with a list of role titles and other important bilingual names adopted by the institution.

Ko te manako ia, e whakamahi ana koutou i tēnei rauemi kia whakakaha ake i āu mahi, i tō tātou kākanoruatanga hoki.
It is our hope that this resource can be used to support your everyday work.

Kia hari te Kirihimete, kia haumaru te Tau Hou, tēnā rawa atu koutou katoa!
