With the Christmas season suddenly fast approaching, we thought it would be a nice idea to share some of our favourite translation-related Christmas presents for that special translation-loving linguist on your Christmas gift list. All of the following items can be found online, so get clicking!


  • For those who need to show off their new vocabulary: Foreign scrabble

Scrabble is now available in many different languages. Simply search for “scrabble [language] version” and your linguist will be playing the game in no time!

  • For those who love a challenge: The Dictionary of Untranslatables: A Philosophical lexicon

This is an amazing book, full of concepts and phrases that cannot be directly translated from their original language. The authors explore the history and culture behind these untranslatable terms, as well as highlight the unique characteristics of particular languages.


  • For a budding freelance translator: Their own domain name!

This is such a useful gift for a freelance translator who is just starting their career. An online presence is nowadays essential for growing business, so why not give them the priceless gift of self-advertisement? Personalised business cards are a smaller, cheaper option if your freelancer isn’t quite ready for the big world of online advertising.

  • For those who are always thinking of others: A gift donation to Translators Without Borders or The Endangered Language Fund

Make a donation to a translation charity on behalf of your linguist for a truly meaningful Christmas. Here, we have mentioned two charities: Translators without Borders are an organisation who work with volunteer translators to help worldwide in relief and humanitarian efforts, and The Endangered Language Fund is a charity dedicated to the protection of rare languages which awards grants to global projects who help keep endangered languages alive.                                                   3


  • For those too busy to sit in a language class: A combined cooking and language course

With this gift your linguist will be able to fulfil their multi-tasking dreams, by cooking their dinner in another language! These courses are available in the UK but your linguist can also attend classes in the country of the particular language, for an even more rewarding experience!

  • For those who want to keep with the times: A subscription to a foreign newspaper or magazine

The majority of newspapers and magazines now have subscription deals, in print or online. Simply choose your linguist’s favourite reading material and set up a year or 6-month subscription.

  • For those who work from home: Essential office gadgets!

If your translator works from home, why not treat them to an office accessory that will help them at work? An ergonomic chair, a document stand, or a coffee machine can all guarantee a more comfortable working environment for your translator.

  • And finally, a few gift ideas for those who are stuck for any stocking fillers

A foreign cookbook

A “word a day” calendar


Vouchers for a bookshop

A travel guide for a place they’ve been longing to visit

A film or some music from a favourite foreign film director or foreign musician


We hope you have found this list helpful in avoiding any last minute dashes to the shops! From all of us here at ApLingo, we wish you a Merry Christmas; or, as our translators say: Feliz Navidad, Joyeux Noël and Prettige Kerstdagen!
