Continuing our series of selective translations, today we tackle the immigration application of a very famous family. Although we all know the members of the Royal Family, we cannot fill in the gaps using our personal knowledge. A selective translation should only reflect what is in the original. Any added comments such as place names should be inserted between square brackets to draw the attention of the reader to the fact that it is added information.

We now have updated our guidelines which will be sent to you soon. The sample selective translations of this series are here to help you understand our guidelines and improve your selective translations. We hope you enjoy these mock translations as much as we enjoy doing them. Please click the link below to find out more.

Disclaimer: Members of the royal family do not need to lodge an immigration application to come to New Zealand.
