It's also worth noting that the translation issue also could be due to different modes of speech. In Spearhead from Space, the Doctor mentions the Delphon, who communicate with their eyebrows. In The Ambassadors of Death, the titular ambassadors use radio waves to speak, making things difficult.

Also keep in mind that these are not the only aliens to speak English. Although Varga the Ice Warrior speaking English could be excused by his proximity to Victoria and the Doctor in The Ice Warriors, the Ice Warriors in The Seeds of Death know English already (speaking it long before the Doctor and his companions arrive where they are), presumably as part of their intelligence on Earth (they know a lot about the T-Mat system they use as part of their plan to conquer the Earth). I could go on...
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.
