Need A Chilcotin Translation? We Can Help.
Chilcotin (Tsilhqot’in, Tzilkotin) is a member of the Northern Athabaskan language family which is made up of 31 different languages divided into seven geographic subgroups. The language is spoken in central British Columbia by the Tsilhqot’in people whose name simply translates to “people of Chilco river”. Today it’s estimated that there are only about 1200 speakers of Chilcotin but ongoing efforts are made to keep the language alive.
Interesting fact: Chilcotin has forty-seven consonants and six vowels plus tone, which makes for a notoriously complex phonological system!
I had a great experience working with WinTranslation. I called first to get an idea of what specific Indigenous dialect I would need translation into based on my program's region and they were very helpful. I received a quick response back on my request for a quote and prompt and polite service throughout the entire interaction. In addition, receipt of my e-mail was acknowledged in a timely manner even though my consultant was out of the office for the afternoon which helped to put my mind at ease.
