Information for translators

We're constantly on the look out for translators to complement our team of professional freelance linguists. 

Please email us at translate@dia.govt.nz if you're interested and ask for an application form.

 

Translating Aotearoa blog

Our blog, Translating Aotearoa, is used to communicate with our pool of freelance linguists from around the world.

The content includes our guidelines and expectations, some training material, general information about our staff members and freelance translators, insight into the translation industry, and some humour too.

Our goals are to involve our freelance translators more in what we do, create a sense of community among our translators and our inhouse staff members, and enhance the level of interaction between us and our translators.

Feel free to leave your comments on the blog, or contact us with any ideas or feedback. Happy reading, and happy translating!
