    FAQs | Creole Solutions

    Understanding Creole Languages
    "I've heard there are different Creole languages. How do I know which one is right for my audience?"

    Indeed, "Creole" encompasses a variety of languages developed from a mix of different languages worldwide. A client once had a survey translated into French for Haitians, assuming it would suffice. However, the target audience did not fully grasp the survey content.

    This misunderstanding highlighted a common misconception: French Creole is not the same as Haitian Creole. After we translated the documents into Haitian Creole, the client saw significantly improved engagement and survey results, underscoring the importance of choosing the right language for your audience.

    About Creole Solutions

    "What inspired the foundation of Creole Solutions?"

    Our journey began in 2015, fueled by Marleen Julien's passion for languages and a vision to address the gap in high-quality, culturally sensitive Haitian Creole translations. Following the 2010 earthquake, Marleen worked with several organizations on behalf of the Haitian Consulate in Chicago, interpreting for new arrivals and assisting them in accessing services.

    This experience, coupled with over two decades of global language service experience, including significant roles with the Haitian government and the United Nations, has deeply informed our mission and approach.

    "How does Creole Solutions stand out from other translation services?"

    Our focus is solely on Haitian Creole, allowing us to develop proprietary tools, such as a custom spellchecker, dictionaries, termbases, and style guides aligned with the latest resolutions of the Haitian Creole Academy.

    We also utilize industry-standard tools like Trados and MemoQ to enhance our translations' accuracy and consistency. This dedication ensures we provide the highest quality translations, tailored to the unique needs and nuances of the Haitian audience.
