Lessons in Language: Mohawk

Lessons in Language: Mohawk

One of our recently completed projects involved the English to Mohawk translation of some basic words and phrases for educational purposes.

This client also needed an interlinear translation, meaning they would require a break down of each word to show which parts of the Mohawk text corresponded to the original English. One of our skilled Mohawk translators was able to provide the thorough explanation our client needed.

Below are a small sample of the terms from this project showing the original English text, the Mohawk translation and pronunciation, and a breakdown of the meaning behind each Mohawk word.

This shows just how different and complex from English the aboriginal languages of Canada are. We found this to be a very interesting project with an exciting chance to learn about the Mohawk language!
