Suzie Napayok has proven to be a professional expert translator from English to Inuktitut as Head of Translation Services for Northern News Services. Her duties include completing translations for time-sensitive news stories, columns, headlines and captions over a three-day period. She is often called upon to complete translations within a 24-hour turnaround time. Suzie then proofreads the newspaper galleys to ensure the Inuktitut and the English content matches on the page, and that the translation is accurate in the context it is presented.
Suzie has demonstrated countless times her dedication to accuracy and attention to detail, including instances when she has discovered errors in the English news copy. Suzie has been called the best translator of written Inuktitut available today. I have no reason to question that assessment.
