- 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.
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.
