Haitian Creole is a developing language, with only a handful of reliable resources available for translation and reference.
This is why we have created our own tools after years of research. When we could not find a Haitian Creole spellchecker in the market, we developed our own from scratch, We have also developed specialized glossaries that are used by the Department of Education and healthcare professionals throughout the United States.
We are the proud creators of:
- Creolelink – a platform to support in learning Haitian Creole including a dictionary, phrasebook, vocabulary, and a collection of Haitian proverbs and sayings and their English translations
- MedicalCreole – a guide for healthcare professionals providing care to Creole-speaking patients with a medical glossary and conversations guides
We have specialized in Haitian Creole translation for more than 15 years.
With over three million words translated last year, our experience includes work in a variety of specialties, including medical, government, NGOs, and a wide range of private and not-for-profit clients.
- We use native speakers
- Our translation quality process is unique
- And we’ve built our company, from the ground up, to deliver Haitian Creole translation services at prices you can afford.
We are proud to make a difference in the thousands of lives of Haitian people. From educational materials to medical documents, our team has the expertise and tools to accurately translate your ideas into culturally relevant, contextualized, and accurate Haitian Creole.
Plus, we offer same-day and 24-hour turnaround for emergency or pandemic related translations.
Founder of Creole Solutions, Inc.
Marleen Julien founded Creole Solutions in 2004 and has been working in the language industry for over 15 years. She has been trained as a medical interpreter and is a voting member of the American Translators Association.
Marleen’s eyes are on every translation we perform. Every translation.
During her work for the Consulate General of Haiti in Chicago and the United Nations Environment Program in Haiti she saw an alarmingly wide range of Haitian Creole translation quality; from the very good to the simply incomprehensible. Clearly, organizations can’t achieve their goals and Haitians cannot be helped without clear, understandable communication. She built Creole Solutions, from the ground up, to be that bridge between the organizations it serves and the Haitian people so deserving of the help. Marleen has provided translation services for many major organizations and government institutions, devoting herself to the ongoing contribution of bettering the lives of the Haitian people, as well as the development of the Haitian Creole language.
She has been educated in Haiti, the United States, and France. She holds multiple degrees, most notably a Master’s Degree in International Development from the Institut d’Études Politiques de Paris (Sciences Po).

“Creole Solutions is amazing to work with! Our company provides solutions to enhance the long-term health, safety & wellbeing of employees for governments, businesses, and schools. We frequently update the text in our application which then requires frequent translations from English to Haitian. Since we started working with the Creole team, we’ve been highly impressed with their services and results. The turnaround time from when we send translations to when we receive them back is typically a week or less, which is plenty of time for our purposes. To date, Creole Solutions has translated approximately 50,000 words for our app. We are excited to continue working with Creole Solutions and would highly recommend them to anyone who is seeking this type of service.”Shane Reeves, Healthy Together
