The Learning Media website provides an excellent and free online English - Te Reo Maori and Te Reo Maori - English dictionary. This page offers a web browser plugin to quickly query in that dictionary.
These plugins allow you to query the translation directly from within Mozilla or Firefox, giving you free Te Reo Maori - English translation. If you're looking to translate Maori words (not whole sentences yet sorry), this is the one for you!
Add the English - Maori language translation plugin for Firefox (or Mozilla)
Ngata English - Te Reo Maori Translator Plugin v1.1
Add the Maori - English language translation plugin for Firefox (or Mozilla)
Ngata Te Reo Maori - English Translator Plugin v1.1
Once you've installed the plugin, you'll have a new 'search engine' installed in the search box of your Firefox (or other Sherlock-capable) browser. Choose "Ngata English - Maori" or "Ngata Maori - English" from the menu (like this)
Type the word you want to translate or paste it in from the web resource you want translated, and hit the ENTER key. You'll get a lookup straight away from the Ngata dictionary ... ngāwari!
If you don't (yet) use a browser that's capable of using Sherlock plugins, just go straight to the dictionary instead, this plugin isn't for you. Oddly this doesn't include Apple's Safari web browser (ironically, as they created the Sherlock plugin format), and (shock!) you can't add custom search capabilities to Microsoft's Internet Explorer. It works really well in Firefox and other Mozilla-based browsers, which makes many of us very happy indeed. If you really like the idea of a browser that can have English - Maori translation added to its capabilities, we hope you'll consider giving Firefox a try ...
