Important Note: This dictionary uses Thai Unicode and needs a computer capable of displaying Unicode fonts.  These include Windows 2000/ME/XP, and certain Mac configurations.  This dictionary does not use the SEAsite ThaiTTF or ThaiEng fonts.

Pasting in words: As practice, use the mouse to copy a word from the Practice Thai words below, then paste it into the dictionary lookup box above.  Similarly, and most easily, words can be copied from your source text to be translated and copied into the lookup box. 

Typing in Thai: You can also enter the word to be looked up by typing it yourself in Thai script.  If needed, a Thai keyboard can be displayed (dragged around too) and used to "click-type" by going to the Microsoft "Start" and then up to "Programs/Accessories/Accessibility/On-Screen Keyboard."  Select Thai and use the TH button on the toolbar at the bottom of the screen.  It takes a few seconds to toggle from English to Thai.  Place the cursor in the entry box of the dictionary lookup; then type by clicking with the mouse on each Thai character needed to form the word to be looked up. 

Practice Thai words to copy/paste:
