Request form for Taungurung Language names and translations
The Taungurung Language Reference Group is dedicated to the revival and preservation of the Taungurung language through community engagement, research, language studies and commitment to supporting development of the wider community engagement with the Taungurung language.
The costs of language service are calculated on an hourly basis. For small jobs (under an hour) this service is provided free of charge. For larger jobs (over an hour), costs to cover staff researching expenses will be charged at $150/hour.
A quote will be provided for this work, including an estimate of the time involved in researching and translation. It is difficult to calculate the precise amount of staff research time required, as needs vary depending on the complexity of the request (sometimes words and concepts do not exist directly), therefore quotes will be provided as an estimated range (eg $300-$450 for 2-3 hours work).
The quote will also outline the expected delivery timeframe, explaining the steps involved in the process, particularly in cases where there is no easy, direct translation and where linguistic experts and the Language Reference Group need to be involved.
Traditional Owner languages are considered intangible cultural heritage under the Aboriginal Heritage Act 2006. There may be restrictions and/or requirements for the use of language and the intellectual property of the word should be respected.
