Court interpreters for English to Thai, Thai to English and multiple other languages
It is vital for a court interpreter to have substantial experience and an understanding of legal proceedings when working in complex and challenging court cases. Communication in the courtroom may be more difficult than one might expect. This is often down to the use of legal jargon and specific terminology as well as the posing of negative or double negative questions by barristers and other legal professionals.

They have an extensive command of legal terminology andare able to recognise difficult phrasing and pick up on colloquialisms, adjusting theirinterpretation accordingly.

The official language of Thailand, Thai, also known as Siamese Thai, is a member of the Tai-Kadai branch of the Tai Language family of Southeast Asia. Siamese Thai is based on the variety of Thai spoken by the educated classes in Bangkok, and is by this measure spoken by around 20 million people. Nonetheless, there exist numerous dialects and variations of Thai, which, when included, increase the number of speakers to approximately 60 million. There are also multiple languages related to Thai spoken in Thailand. For instance, in the North Eastern parts of Thailand near Laos, a related language called the "Isan language" is used. This language is spoken by around 20 million people in Laos and Thailand and is informally known as "Lao". Often, Lao is mutually intelligible with Thai and the two have very similar scripts.
Most speakers of other forms of Siamese Thai or its related languages also speak the Bangkok dialect as it is this which is used in schools, institutions and the media all across the country.
Like Chinese, Thai is a tonal language. It uses mid, low, falling, high, and rising tones, which completely alter the meaning of words which appear identical. There are 21 consonant sounds and 9 vowel-like sounds distinguishable in Thai.
Although it completely lacks the quality of inflection, Thai is made up of a number of registers used in various social contexts - these are: Common Thai; Formal/Elegant Thai; Rhetorical Thai; Religious Thai and Royal Thai which are taught to children in schools.
Thai script is beautiful to look at. Like Khmer (the official language of Cambodia), it is thought to be of Southern Indic (Indian) origin and interestingly, the majority of Thai words are loan-words from Pāli, Sandskrit and Old Khmer. Thai is written from left to right. Spaces do not indicate word separation but are instead used as a form of punctuation.
There is no unified method of transcribing Thai script into Latin alphabet which accounts for many variations in spelling of Thai words - something particularly noticeable in Thai restaurants.
