Thai Translation Service offers Thai-English document translation at the very attractive rate of $0.05 (5 cents) U.S. per word (subject to a $10 minimum) for general non-technical content.

Translations are performed by native speakers of Thai who have excellent English language skills. All translations are proof read by either native English speakers (for Thai to English) or native Thai speakers (for English to Thai). Translations are guaranteed to be grammatically correct in either language and to make proper use of idioms.

Turnaround time is typically less than 48 hours from the time we receive your documents and payment. Please send us your documents by email.

We offer several formats for your convenience. For Windows users we will send English translations in Microsoft Word. For Thai translations we provide Microsoft Word for users with Thai fonts installed on their Windows PC. For users without Thai fonts we provide translations in PDF format which can be viewed using the free Acrobat reader from Adobe; no Thai fonts required. Other formats are available upon request.

Regarding Machine Translations

Machine translation, sometimes called automatic or software translation, relies on a computer program to translate between the language pairs, in this case Thai and English. Machine translation is quite effective for many western language pairs. It is NOT effective for Thai and English. The technology has still not advanced to the point that any useful results are produced. A number of factors cause Thai and English not to yield to automatic translation, including very fundamental differences in grammar and structure, and even more so the differences in cultural context.

Several tools are available, some costing hundreds of dollars, others free. They all yield nonsense, which you can verify yourself by translating your English document to Thai and then back to English. Our advice is don't waste your money and time. With today's technology it still takes a human to translate between Thai and English.
