Anishininiimowin (Oji-Cree) Translation Services

Anishininiimowin (ᐊᓂᐦᔑᓂᓃᒧᐏᐣ), also known as Oji-Cree or Severn Ojibwa is a language mainly spoken in northern Ontario and parts of Manitoba.

The name “Oji-Cree” emerged during the era of early settlers and has become widely recognized as the name associated with Anisininew Nations and their language. Honoring the identity and uniqueness of language and culture is important to us, and we use the traditional names whenever possible.

As implied by the name, Anishininiimowin (Oji-Cree) is a dialect of the Anishinaabemowin (Ojibwe) language which has been influenced by the Cree language over time. Many terms have nêhiyawêwin (Plains Cree) origin, however the language structure is more closely related to that of Anishinaabemowin.

Anishininiimowin (Oji-Cree) Language Translation Considerations

The Anishininiimowin (Oji-Cree) language is currently classified as vulnerable and has about 13,000 speakers. Translating into these languages requires a thoughtful approach distinct from more commonly spoken languages. Here are some key considerations:

  • Writing systems: Anishininiimowin can be written with both syllabics and the Roman alphabet.
  • Language Experts First: Indigenous translators are, for the most part, not full-time translators but first and foremost they are masters of the language, and often teachers or community leaders, so their availability might be limited.
  • No Standards for Written Language: there have been no standardized spelling norms developed, so translation revision is a complicated process
