Fujtisu said it has added te reo Māori as the language of choice on its ServiceNow digital workflow platform, providing customers with dynamic translation for chats, virtual agents, notifications and knowledge base articles.
Government agencies and private sector organisations are ServiceNow customers, Fujitsu said.
The Translator Bot app developed by Fujitsu for ServiceNow handles installation, configuration, and maintenance of static user interface and dynamic content.
Fujitsu worked with Straker Translations, a company that counts the NZ Police, the Accident Compensation Corporation and Ministry of Justice as its government clients.
The Japanese IT giant said the initiative supports Aotearoa New Zealand's digital demands, for better ways to work and added that it is the first service provider in the country to offer native indigenous language.
Aotearoa New Zealand celebreates the Māori Language Week annually, every third week in September.
Over 17 per cent of the population in Aotearoa New Zealand are of Māori descent.
