The Language of Haiti
Haitian Creole is a French-based creole language native to Haiti that is spoken by somewhere between 9.5 and 12 million people all over the world. French and Haitian Creole are Haiti’s two official languages, yet they are not mutually intelligible.
French is viewed as the language of the elite and upper class, while Haitian Creole can be seen as a language with no status. Yet Haitian Creole is the language spoken in most Haitian homes.
The specific dialect of French that Haitian Creole developed from was spoken in the 18th century, and the influence of many West African languages plus the language of the indigenous Taíno people, Portuguese, and Spanish. This mix largely comes from the contact between French settlers and slaves from West Africa.

Haiti at a Glance
Haiti is the second most populous country in the Caribbean, and was also the very first independent nation in all of the Caribbean and Latin America. The country is extremely rich in culture and history and is where Columbus landed during his very first voyage in 1492.
Historically Haiti was full of sugar plantations and its tropical climate makes it an excellent source of mangoes, coffee, cacao, and many other crops. Haiti is also one of the leading producers of vetiver, a type of grass whose roots have an oil that is used in many cosmetic products as well as fragrances.
Despite these exports and tourism, Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the world, with the lowest human development index of all the countries that make up the Americas. Haiti relies heavily on foreign aid to remain afloat, which generally comes from the U.S., Canada, the European Union, and the neighboring Dominican Republic.
In order for these countries to provide effective aid, Haitian Creole translation services are a must. Specifically, those who work in disaster relief, global health, development and technical assistance will benefit from accurate Haitian translation.
