Woods Cree Translation Services
Woods Cree to English
The Cree language is spoken in several dialects over a very large geographical area in Canada and USA.
The Eastern Cree and closely related Montagnais and Naskapi are spoken on the east coast of Canada throughout Labrador and on the eastern side of Hudson Bay & James Bay respectively. Attikamek Cree or the “R” dialect is spoken in Quebec.
The Moose Cree or the “L” dialect is spoken in Ontario along the James Bay and Hudson’s Bay region. The Eastern Swampy Cree is also spoken within the region just mentioned and through much of North Western Ontario.
The Swampy Cree dialect as a whole is known as the “N” dialect, differences between the eastern and western Swampy Cree, in Ontario and Manitoba regions are quite great and the differences are substantial. Plains Cree or the “Y” dialect is spoken in southern Saskatchewan and through central Alberta. The Woods Cree, sometimes referred to as the Rock Cree, is spoken in Manitoba and in north-eastern Saskatchewan, it is referred as the “Th” dialect. The Cree language is also spoken in parts of north-eastern British Columbia, the Northwest Territories, and in the state of Montana.
The origination of the word “Cree” comes from the short form of a cross variation of the Ojibwa word “kistanowak” (people of the north) and the Jesuit equivocal word “kristinue”.
This led to the néhiyawak being called the ‘kris’ (Crees).

Things to Consider
Woods Cree Transcreation
There are a wide range cultural aspects in the Woods Cree speaking world that can vary quite significantly depending on the region. For example, many colors, symbols, and region-specific slang can have unintended implications. It is vital that text be adapted accordingly.
In the translation industry we use the term ‘Transcreation’ to refer to this adaptation of a text to suit the cultural understanding of a specific target audience.
