Cree Dialects

Of all the aboriginal languages spoken in Canada, the Cree family has the most speakers. There are many different dialects of the Cree language, each with their own unique characteristics when speaking and writing the languages. It is important to consider which dialect is needed when dealing with an English into Cree translation. wintranslation is proud to offer both Cree into English translation and English into Cree translation services.
