Expert Thai Translators
Thailand—the ultimate vacation destination in Southeast Asia. International tourists flock to the tropical country each year, bringing in tens of billions of dollars to the Thai economy. But Thailand isn’t just tourism—it’s also one of the most developed economies in the region, with the second-largest GDP in Southeast Asia and the fourth-highest human development index rating. Thailand’s economy has been steadily expanding since the 1980s, outshining its more heavily populated neighbors like Vietnam and the Philippines.
With all this economic strength, Thailand is a wise option for foreign companies looking to move their business ventures abroad. Thai businesses are also increasingly eying the outside market, hoping to open up to more than just a Thai customer base. For either goal, professional Thai translation services are imperative. At ProofreadingServices.com, we boast an expert Thai translation team with the right skillset to help you succeed, whether you’re a company, researcher, or author.

The Challenges of the Thai Language
Thai is a far cry from anything European language speakers are used to. Thai is the biggest language in the Kra–Dai language family, followed by neighboring Lao. Smaller related languages are spoken by minorities in southern China. Surprisingly, Thai is not at all related to neighboring Khmer, an Austroasiatic language, despite their almost identical scripts.
Thai is classified as an analytical, isolating language with almost no inflection. It has no genders, no plural, and no cases, which may lead people to believe it’s a simple language. However, Thai’s lack of inflection makes word order extremely important and cuts down on the nuances that may be possible in more heavily inflected languages. To indicate tense, aspect, and mood in verbs, Thai typically uses auxiliary words, but these are often omitted in colloquial language, creating ambiguous sentences that must be interpreted through context. Pronouns in Thai are also complicated—Thai uses several different first- and second-person pronouns based on gender, formality, and social relationship. Thai’s idiosyncrasies can make it tricky to translate accurately and naturally—but not for experts. Our Thai translators have years of experience and are well versed in crafting high-quality Thai translations.

- Tourism collateral. Thailand is a beautiful and enticing country, but the language barrier may intimate some would-be visitors. The linguistic challenges are compounded by Thai’s native script, famous for its complexity and lack of intuitiveness for learners.

- Literature. Whether you’ve created a nonfiction book, a novel, a collection of short stories, a short film, or an immersive video game, your reach is limited by the language of your work. English may be the de facto lingua franca, but billions of people around the world don’t speak it—or just prefer content in their native language.
