    WHAT SHOULD YOU CONSIDER WHEN TRANSLATING INTO THAI?

    When localizing into the Thai market, you should pay attention to the following useful tips for a successful Thai localization project:

    • Thailand is a mobile-first market. More and more people in Thailand can afford mobile phones and adapt quickly to prioritizing mobile in their digital lifestyles.
      In Thailand, every day has its color. The day’s lucky colors are: Sunday – red; Monday – yellow/cream; Tuesday – pink; Wednesday – green at daytime, grey at night; Thursday – orange/brown; Friday – light blue; Saturday – purple/black.
    • Thai people use two numeral systems – Arabic numbers and Thai numbers for different purposes.
    • Both the Thai solar calendar and the Thai lunar calendar are used daily.
    • The Thai language does not use space to separate words and phrases in a sentence which might cause line-breaking problems.
    • Instead, spaces are used for various other purposes. The rules for using spaces are so complex that even native speakers get confused sometimes.
    • The choice of Thai pronouns depends on a wide range of factors, such as gender, age, formality, politeness, familiarity, etc.
    • Texts in Thai are usually 15% longer than in English.
    • Thai people have adopted the metric system of measurement since 1923. However, the old Thai units are still in common use, especially when measuring lands (wha, ngaan and rai).
    • There are two time systems in Thailand. The standard time is in 24-hour notation, used in military, aviation, navigation, meteorology, astronomy, computing, logistical, emergency services, and hospital settings. For everyday usage, Thai people prefer the six-hour clock that divides the day into four quarters, counting six hours each.
    • The full name format is the first name followed by the family name. Most Thai people have two names: their full, official name and a nickname. A Thai person only uses his or her official name in formal situations. Even at work, most people use their nicknames. They are bound up in the very nature of Thai-ness and an important part of Thai culture.
    • The address format is house number, street, ward, district, city.

    THAI TRANSLATION SERVICES Q&A

    When estimating the exact price for a Thai translation service, we take into account various aspects that affect the cost of Thai translation and localization:
    – Project capacity: In general, our Thai translation services are priced per word or character.
    – Types of Services: We offer three kinds of Thai translation services: translation only, translation + editing, and translation + editing + proofreading. The price will increase if more tasks are involved.
    – Industry experience: Any requirement for the translator’s specialized knowledge impact the price. A profound comprehension of a field and a strong mastery of its vocabulary are typically connected with a special skill.
    Feel free to contact one of our experts today to receive a free Thai translation quote.

    We often choose native Thai linguists for the target language in Thai translation services. For example, if you order Korean to Thai translation services, a native Thai linguist will translate your documents. For complex or high-volume documents, we will discuss and choose both native Korean and Thai translators.

    Task size, content specificity, service types, and other different needs all affect the delivery time of a Thai translation service. A translator may translate between 2,000 and 2,500 words each day on average. Our translators can drastically reduce turnaround times using translation memory (TM) technology, depending on how much the content is repeated. To speed complex Thai translations, we can also provide a team of Thai translators rather than a single one.
    Contact our experts now to discuss your turnaround requirements.
