Need A Halkomelem Translation? We Can Help.

Halkomelem  is spoken in southwestern British Columbia, Canada and into northern Washington, United States. Halkomelem has three distinct dialect groups:

  • An Island dialect spoken by the Snuynemuxw, Nanoonse, Chemainus, Cowichan, Halalt, Lake Cowichan, Lyackson, and Penelakut.
  • A Downriver dialect, spoken by the Musqueam, Twawwassen, Kawntlen, Tsleil-Waututh, Qayqayt, Kwikwetlem, and Katzie First Nations.
  • An Upriver dialect, called Upper Sto:lo, spoken between Matsqui First Nation and Yale.

Halkomelem is currently considered an endangered language with only 260 native speakers in 35 of 42 communities in Canada.

What do I need to know about Aboriginal Languages?

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.
