I asked a simple question about translation I neither wanted or deserved your patronising response.   The lady in question is somebody that I will be meeting over Christmas when I am visiting Thailand for two months.   I am going to stay at her family home with a good friend of mine who is married to her sister.    We have had several video chats over the last months and have managed to communicate with the assistance of the sister who speaks good English.   Merely company for the four of us to tour around a little over the holiday I have no intention of making her my life partner.     You have jumped to conclusions and insulted me with your comments about my friends and intentions.  I suggest you get your head out of your butt and investigate a little more before jumping to conclusions.

Thai an "inefficient" language? Do you actually speak it? Thai is extremely "economical". English is "inefficient" with its silly tenses, inflections, plurals, redundant pronouns. Why say I "went" yesterday when the temporal adverb "yesterday" makes the time obvious? Why two "cars" when the "two" shows it's more than one car. I find Thai even more "efficient" than Chinese, with its sneaky plurals. As for an app to translate Thai to English, good luck. I've never found a useful one.

it is inefficient.

If I ask my girlfriend to discuss some more important topic because of her -of cause- far better Thai with an official, salesman, whoever  - it takes her 2 to 3 times the time, I would need in my mother language.

 

Picking up your example: 2 cars versus รถ 2 คัน (rot 2 kan) - so 3 letters from the classifier instead of 1 "s" 

If you compare, for example,  technical terms for a car, you'll also realize that what is achieved with a relatively short english 2 syllable word (eg. boot lid) takes a far longer (official) Thai word ( in this case 4 syllables gra pro:ng tha:i rot) กระโปรงท้ายรถ

As I said she doesn't read or write Thai only speaks it

 

You are sure, she is Thai?

How old is she?

Public education is available since long in Thailand, not at least to ensure developing a Thai identity. I am only aware of some 60 years plus Thai, who cannot read Thai ...

To comment on "BernieOnTour's" post.  I find the same thing.  Back in Farang Land you can ask the sales person a question like; "Do you have a USB WiFi Dongle for a Samsung TV?"  The reply will be a quick "yes" or "no".  My wife has asked the same question in Thai to the Thai sales person and the whole affair has taken at least 5 minutes of intense conversation to come up with the answer.  I have observed this lengthy process on many occasion and am convinced that it does indeed take far longer to communicate concepts and ideas, or get an answer to a simple question, than in most other languages.  I believe that it's because the language is not specific enough in it's structure and has far fewer words in it's vocabulary.  Also extra spacial thinking is not a forte and when combined with an insular approach to the world you will find that patience is a great  asset.

Good luck with your quest "Alsyapal".  Unfortunately there are folks out there who sport with honest people seeking honest answers, don't let it put you off.  Their posts expose them for what they are and the moderators are quickly on to most of them.

Does anyone have a good translator app from the app store (apple)?  I showed my bf the แปลเสียงไทย app and now he wants one for his iphone....but  we couldn't find it in the app store.
