Thai Translation

Quick jump to: Thai Translation In The News

thai translation, thai language, Ramkhamhaeng The advent of globalization and the Internet triggered a growing need for translation all over the world. Thailand has not been an exception. Translation and interpretation are emerging sectors in Thailand today.

The role of English in Thailand is quite important. However, there is only one official language in the country, the Thai language. The Thai alphabet was created by King Ramhamhaeng the Great (you can see him on the photo) in the 13th century.

If you need something translated between English and Thai, be prepared for text expansion/contraction in translation. Expect a 15% expansion when translating from English to Thai and a 5% to 15% contraction when translating in the reverse direction, from Thai to English.

What does it mean for you as a translation buyer?
  • Try to agree on price based on English word with your language service provider.
  • Allow enough space for expansion of a translated text, especially in graphically rich marketing materials and product labeling.

Speak Easy Thai

learn Thai easy

You've decided that you would like to learn Thai. Well done for that.

Apparently, you want to learn it as quickly and easily as possible.

You don't want to be bored. You want to have fun learning to speak and understand modern Thai.

Speak Easy Thai offers a fun and low cost way to learn the Thai vocabulary and alphabet.

The main problem with learning Thai is that you have to learn the new alphabet, which is completely different from Latin-based alphabets, such as English, German or French. Also, you have to memorize hundreds, if not thousands, of strange sounds.

This is difficult, unless you use some sort of memory trigger. Speak Easy Thai helps solve this problem by presenting a picture and a sound file; all words are spoken by native Thai speakers. Find out more here.
