The 12 Days of Christmas (for language lovers everywhere)

With the holidays almost upon us, I thought I’d get into the festive spirit and have a little fun with today’s post.

Anyone who follows me on Twitter will know that I can’t resist a silly translation/language/grammar-related pun and, in what is fast becoming a JALTranslation tradition, here are 12 of my favourite punny images from the last year to (hopefully) help you bring in the New Year with a smile.

All that remains is for me to thank you all for making 2014 such an enjoyable year, fingers crossed that 2015 brings more of the same. Whatever you’re doing, enjoy the holidays! 😀

The 12 days of Christmas: A JALTranslation special

Before I sign off for the year, I thought it would be nice to have a little festive fun. Over the course of the last 12 months, I’ve come across a selection of funny images tailor-made for translation nuts and grammar geeks like myself and thought it would be nice to share them on my blog. So here are 12 of my favourites to put the Ho Ho Ho into your holiday season.

There’s a bit of everything in there: some linguistic silliness, grammar police-y punning and film title translations very much in line with blog posts I’ve brought you over the last year.

All that remains is to wish you all the very best for the holiday season and an enjoyable start to 2014. I’ll see you in the new year. Enjoy!
