All I want for Christmas this year…

 

santaWe all have that special Christmas wish list we secretly, or perhaps not so secretly, want to share with Santa. This year, here at STB, we were lucky enough to have some of our translators share with us what they, as linguists, would really like for Christmas.

 

Let’s have a look at some of the highlights, by singing a traditional Christmas song with a twist. Feel free to join in if you like!

 

 

 

On the 1st day of Christmas, my true love gave to me …
… some awesome translations relating to sewing, the feedback I got when I sent them was glowing!

On the 2nd day of Christmas, my true love gave to me …
… a desk with a treadmill to walk while I work, it keeps me quite fit, but I look like a jerk.

 

On the 3rd day of Christmas, my true love gave to me …
… instructions to learn how to use ‘MemoQ’, a CAT tool that helps me to do work for you.

 

On the 4th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me …
… Romanian lessons and, to keep up with fiction, I also received an Audible subscription.

 

On the 5th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me …
… the gift of world peace, to cure all our ills, and also some decent time-management skills.

On the 7th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me …

On the 8th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me …

On the 9th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me …
… some marketing jobs for my creative fix, and some books filled with grammar and stylistic tips.

On the 10th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me …

On the 11th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me …

On the 12th day of Christmas … I was too tired, so my true love just told me what you all desired!
