Thai added to Google translation website

PHUKET: Lost in translation? Here’s an end to your worries, cyber folks. Google has added Thai to the beta version of its free translation website – – now making it possible to translate 42 languages to and from Thai.

With these free tools, Thai-speaking users can translate anything from whole websites down to single words. They can also use keywords to search for web pages and have the results automatically translated back into Thai. In addition, Thai-language website owners can get a gadget that will instantly translate their sites into 42 languages.

“We believe the Internet is about enabling access to information regardless of language,” said Derek Callow, marketing manager for Google Southeast Asia. “Google Translate makes it easier for millions of Thai-speaking Internet users to search and access much more web content.”

The free service also allows users to suggest a better translation if they come across inaccuracies.
