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!

What do I need to know about Aboriginal Languages?

Our organization needed several materials translated into Atikamekw and Naskapi to promote rail safety in Indigenous communities. Wintranslation responded to our request and provided us with an accurate quote and estimated turnaround time — which was surprisingly quick. Although our materials were designed in-house, the wintranslation team was happy to review all final designs to ensure there were no errors, and the layout was correct. We will definitely do business with them again for future projects.

I approached Wintranslation because I needed a series of Educational Posters translated into Swampy Cree to facilitate a broader reach to our Indigenous audience. Wintranslation made the process easy even when I was unable to communicate regularly. I really appreciated their quick turn around times (faster than quoted) and their patience with my questions about the translation (not having any background with the language). The end result are some fabulous resources that will be shared with kids and adults alike, with more to come!

Gloria P., Inuktut Translator

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.
