The Thai language is sometimes referred to as Siamese and technical translation requests are becoming more common. Due to the GDP in Thailand increasing dramatically, business and technical translation requests are the most common Thai translation requests seen at Tomedes.
The last Thai translation we did was for an eight page instructional manual for an mp3 player. The manual needed to be translated from Thai into English. Three of our best Thai translators took on the translation project and were able to finish it in under a week.
Thai translation requests are most common for companies who outsource to Thailand. It’s becoming increasingly more important to hire a professional Thai translation service rather than an auto translator. Auto translators won’t pick up the different dialects of the Thai language, which is especially important for business translations to ensure everything is translated properly. Mistranslations can be embarrassing and lead to miscommunications.
