Our Haitian Creole Translation Services, Available Here
Officially, Haiti is bilingual, and French has traditionally been used as the language of education and politics. However, the tides are turning, and Haitian Creole is increasingly gaining use in official and educational contexts. Around 40% of the population speaks French, but Haiti is also home to many monolingual Haitian Creole speakers. And though most of the vocabulary in Haitian Creole is derived from French, the languages are by no means mutually intelligible.
This means that if you’re trying to engage a Haitian audience, French isn’t going to be sufficient. To truly connect with Haitian customers or readers, a Haitian Creole translation is necessary—and here at ProofreadingServices.com, that’s precisely what we offer. Our Haitian Creole translators are seasoned experts and can produce translations from English to Haitian Creole or from Haitian Creole to English—whatever you need.

The Best in Haitian Creole Translation Services
With an estimated 9.6 million native speakers, Haitian Creole (often just called Kreyòl in Haiti) is the world’s largest creole in terms of native speakers. While heavily associated with French, and indeed borrowing most of its lexicon from French, Haitian Creole uses a structure more similar to the Kwa and Bantu languages of West Africa, particularly Fon. Haitian Creole also contains vocabulary derived from Portuguese and Taíno, the language of the indigenous inhabitants of Haiti.
French speakers can’t understand Haitian Creole—the African grammar and structure throw them off. For the same reason, monolingual Haitian Creole speakers can’t understand French, either. Here at ProofreadingServices.com, our Haitian Creole translation team is dedicated to serving Haitians in their native language, whether that means translating content into Haitian Creole or helping Haitians spread their own content worldwide. For either direction, you can count on our Haitian Creole translation experts.
