Professional and Accurate Localization Solutions
Thai is the official language of Thailand and is a recognized minority language in parts of Myanmar, Cambodia, and Malaysia. With 40 million speakers globally, native Thai speakers can be found in the United States, China, Laos, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Singapore, Midway Islands, the United Kingdom (UK), and Sweden. Recently, Thailand has attempted to grow its life sciences sector as part of its ‘Thailand 4.0’ initiative and is poised to become a high-growth market for medical device manufacturing.
CSOFT Health Sciences helps life science companies successfully enter Thailand’s local market through linguistic accuracy, in-depth cultural understanding, subject matter expertise, and localization best practices. Additionally, high-quality, consistent translation and localization solutions for the Thai language through a combination of advanced AI translation technology combined with native, in-country linguists for a quick turnaround time.
There are four main Thai dialects: Central dialect (klang), Southern dialect (tai), Northern dialect (khammuang), and the Northeastern dialect (lao). With so many different cultural nuances that vary across regions, the importance of understanding local communities is critical for ensuring success in whatever product or service is entering the market.
Through our in-country, subject matter expert linguists, and with over 20 years of experience, CSOFT understands the importance of distinguishing different dialects of Thai depending on the Thai translation project.
Thai Language Registers
In the Thai language, there are a variety of registers that are used, depending on the context and subject:
- Street or common Thai (phasa phut): informal and casual commonly used when speaking with relatives and close friends.
- Elegant or formal Thai (phasa khian): The official written and spoken form of Thai; uses respectful terms of address
- Rhetorical Thai: used for public speaking
- Religious Thai: Only used for talking about Buddhism or addressing monks.
- Royal Thai (racha sap): used when addressing or discussing members of the Thai royal family
Incorrect use of the different Thai registers risks embarrassment, rudeness and highlights a poor understanding of the Thai language. Corporations or companies entering the Thai market need to be acutely aware of how different social contexts and topics influence which register is used.
