Currently this dictionary contains the print version of the Cook Islands Maori Dictionary (1995), by Jasper Buse with Raututi Taringa and edited by Bruce Biggs and Rangi Moeka‘a. It was converted to digital format for this online dictionary in the early part of 2013 by VO2 Web Designs for the Cook Islands Ministry of Education in partnership with Te Ipukarea, The National Māori Language Institute, Auckland University of Technology (AUT).
Once converted from the print to the digital version, the data was checked by a team at the Cook Islands Ministry of Education. The data was then sent to Aotearoa/New Zealand for importing on to the website by VO2.
Adding of two other Rarotangan dictionaries is planned.
