English to Thai Translation Projects
We assist organizations with documentation or marketing material (e.g. brochures, manuals, website content, PowerPoint presentations, product labeling, etc.) that are written in Thai and require accurate translation into English.
Of course, in addition to English to Thai and Thai to English translation assignments, we can also assist you with the translation of the world's most popular languages to and from Thai: Arabic ↔ Thai; Spanish ↔ Thai; French ↔ Thai; German ↔ Thai; Italian ↔ Thai; Portuguese ↔ Thai; Russian ↔ Thai; Japanese ↔ Thai; Chinese ↔ Thai; Hindi ↔ Thai; to name but the most popular... We can source translation expertise for virtually any language pair.
Thai Language Style
Our translators, editors and proofreaders render well-written and clearly understandable texts. We place a high value on rendering a finished product that is faithful to the language style of the original text.
Thai to English Translation Projects
We assist businesses in finding the best available Thai to English language translation resources – including experienced Thai language translators (native-speaking Thai if appropriate or required).
In our experience, a Thai language native-speaker may not necessarily be the right translator for the job. (See: Common myths and misconceptions about translation.) Though a native-speaker may be preferable for certain translation assignments, having Thai as a native language may not 'translate into' Thai language expertise (pun intended). An experienced linguist with strong Thai and English language translation credentials, in-depth experience and professional credentials, regardless of native language, may often prove to be a better choice.
Identifying and securing the services of the appropriate Thai language resources is what we do! (Refer to our Thai translation assignment process for information on our Thai translation project management process).
In a nutshell, we use professional translators who have a solid mastery of the Thai language (grammar, spelling, cultural nuances) and a solid understanding of the subject matter.
Once we are confident that the appropriate freelance resources have been identified and certain that we can honour the project deadline, we submit a quote for the translation assignment.
If we cannot secure the appropriate resources, we will do our best to refer you to Thai translation sources of information that we have confidence in.

Thai, is the national and official language of Thailand and the mother tongue of the Thai people, Thailand's dominant ethnic group. Thai is a member of the Tai group of the Tai-Kadai language family. The Tai-Kadai languages are thought to have originated in what is now southern China, and some linguists have proposed links to the Austroasiatic, Austronesian, or Sino-Tibetan language families. It is a tonal and analytic language. The combination of tonality, a complex orthography, relational markers and a distinctive phonology can make Thai difficult to learn for those who do not already speak a related language.
Standard Thai, also known as Central Thai or Siamese, is the official language of Thailand, spoken by about 65 million people (1990) including speakers of Bangkok Thai (although the latter is sometimes considered as a separate dialect). Khorat Thai is spoken by about 400,000 (1984) in Nakhon Ratchasima; it occupies a linguistic position somewhere between Central Thai and Isan on a dialect continuum, and may be considered a variant or dialect of either.
