Chic-Choc Translations worked on the documentary series Of Boats and Men (Des Bateaux et des hommes) from the production’s development stage. While the series was in production, Chic-Choc Translations was regularly called on to transcribe interviews with participants of the program, in English and in Spanish, and to translate the Spanish interviews into English.

Once the French version of the series had been broadcast in Quebec, Chic-Choc Translations was hired to adapt two 50-minute episodes into English for Groupe PVP’s international distributor. We translated the episodes “Lake Living” and “Replenishing Remote Islands”. Later in 2020, we were hired to translate an episode of the web-series, a 7-minute short titled “No Longer Smooth Sailing”.
