Deadline no excuse for bad translation

By NUNATSIAQ NEWS

Best sincere wishes to this newspaper on the things that are printed for the majority of the people in Nunavut.

On the contrary, I did disapprove on the editor’s note that you’ve made on the editorial section on January 7, especially on those translations that were produced on January 3. The perception of the translator could’ve been a whole lot better; that, I agree with Mr. Illupalik.

Also, I did admire the way you supported your servant.

Lastly, the reason why I did not agree with you due to the fact that time does not wait for any individual or even agencies what-so-ever, even if there was any pressure or otherwise. That my friend, is the harsh reality of life. A deadline is no excuse for shabby translating!
