Wonderfull.com has a list of several hundred Thai words taken from English and other languages, called 'tap sap' in Thai. Additionally, there are audio files with commentary by the author. They're arranged in 20-minute segments and are downloadable for free.

One of the most important for standarisation issues for written Thai and Roman transcriptions, such as the official Royal Thai General System of Transcription (RTGS) transcriptions for Thai place names, can be found at the Royal Thai Institute website, along with a dictionary.

In Thai: http://www.royin.go.th/th/home/

In English: http://www.royin.go.th/en/home/index.php

As a supplement, Wikipedia's useful entry on RTGS at:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Thai_Ge...f_Transcription

You can download a program that will generate RTGS transcriptions if you input Thai script, here:

From the above site you can also download a .pdf containing a comprehensive list of RTGS place names in Thailand.

Software:

The Nation's Most Entries Talking Dictionary -- 199 baht for the original version by DID International. T-E, E-T, T-T Dictionaries. It has a pop up option where you can highlight words and you will get both a Thai and English definition as well as an English transliteration of Thai words. After only a few days, I find it very helpful and easy to use! Over 600,000 words.

English Translator Tool -- 450 Baht (300 baht on sale at some shops) for original copy by NC. You can type in English sentences and it will translate them into Thai for you in the proper Thai sentence structure if your English sentences are not too complicated. It will give you options that allow you to choose between different Thai words if there are variations in meaning, etc. This "3 In 1" Software also has build in T-E and E-T Dictionaries. (There is also a Thai Translator Tool that you can buy that also has the above mentioned dictionaries included.)

Others:

I would also like to highly recommend starting out with the MoE teachthai.com to learn the basics such as consonants and vowels. However, the site seems to be down quite often. It lets you log in but you cannot access lessons. I find that only Explorer works well on this site.

Learningthai.com or http://www.seasite.niu.edu/Thai/maanii/menu/default.htm are great to use to start very basic reading in Thai. I find Firefox works better when accessing these sites.

The Rosetta Stone Software is also quite good to improve your Thai once you have the basics down pat.

Hi,

I am hoping that someone can help me or point me in the right direction? I married a Thai woman and we are having problems communicating. I am in the US and she is still in Thailand. I am looking for a sofeware program that will work both ways with e-mail. English<>thai.

Thanks so much,

Randy

The Conquery plug-ins for FireFox are great, but if any of you are Mac users and prefer to use Safari, you might be interested in what looks to be a really good plug-in that offers similar functions for Safari. It's called "AcidSearch", and you can read about it at http://www.pozytron.com/acidsearch (from Andrew Mac)

Randy, sorry, there really isn't a solution that simple.

If you want to make sure you get your message though, one of you will have to learn the other person's language better - this in itself means understanding more about one another's cultures, which is necessary if you want to be together longterm. As for letter writing, if possible, ask or pay a bilingual person help translate what you write.

The most common machine translation tools will attempt to do the job but will make you more confused than you were before.

Tap Sap are Thai words adapted from other languages - usually English.

You hear examples every day, such as 'taxi' 'guest house' 'check bin' 'beer bar'

To access the most comprehesive list of such words (well over 500),

check out: http://wonderfull.com/words.htm

if you'd like to suggest words that may not already be on the list,

please submit to the poster of this notice; brahmburgers.
