A Few Facts About English to Thai Translation
Thai is simpler than English is some ways, and more complex in others. There is also the fact that a decent percentage of Thai people speak a language other than Thai. Here are a few other things to keep in mind about an English to Thai translation:
- Thai is also sometimes called Siamese, and there are four major dialects of the Thai language: Official or Standard Thai, also called Central or Bangkok Thai, Northern Thai (Yuran) Northeastern Thai (Isan, which is close to the Lao language) and Southern Thai.
- There is very little about Thai grammar that pertains to fixed rules. There are no articles, no verb conjugations, no noun declensions, no object pronouns and most difficult of all, there is no past tense in Thai language.
- To indicate something in the past, modify a verb-to-noun, or show levels of respect, “particles” are added on to the sentence. Learning how to use these particles with such a simple grammar system can actually be more difficult, and seem very abstract to English speakers who are used to set rules of grammar and language.
- Tonality is a huge part of experienced, professional Thai translation. Each word has a specific tone or pitch characteristic that must be uttered with the word in order to be understood. The five tones are high, mid, low, rising and falling.
- It's very much a part of Thai culture and language to show varying levels of respect to those addressed, by using their respective particles. Expressing social rank and authority figures require different sentence particles than say, a child addressing his/her parents.
