     Welcome to Thai Translate and Interpret. My name is Totsaporn Paiyakarn, but please call me Tae (เท่). I am thrilled to introduce myself and my services.

     I grew up in Ubon Ratchathani, a beautiful province in the northeast of Thailand, surrounded by rice paddies, waterfalls, and stunning temples. From a young age, I was fascinated by language and communication. I was always eager to learn new words and expressions, and I loved to read books and watch movies in English.

     After finishing high school, I decided to pursue my passion for languages and enrolled in the English Department at Khon Kaen University. During my studies, I took courses in phonetics, syntax, sociolinguistics, and translation, and I was particularly drawn to the field of translation and interpretation. I found it fascinating to convey meaning between languages and cultures, and I enjoyed the challenge of finding the best equivalent for every word, phrase, and sentence.

     In addition to my academic studies, I also took part in various extracurricular activities that helped me improve my language skills and cultural awareness. I joined the Debate Club, where I had the opportunity to practice my speaking and listening skills with native speakers and fellow learners. I was also an English tutor for local children who wanted to learn English as a foreign language, which was a rewarding experience that taught me how to explain complex concepts in a simple and engaging way.

     After graduating from university with a bachelor's degree in English, I decided to pursue a career in the language industry. I've been working as a freelance Thai-English translator and interpreter in Thailand while building my translation networks locally and abroad. In 2019, I relocated to Ireland to work as a language analyst at a multinational company that specializes in machine learning and natural language processing. In this role, I used my knowledge of linguistics to train machine learning models to recognize and generate text in Thai and English. I also provided linguistic feedback and quality assurance for the company's products and services.

     As a professional Thai-English translator and interpreter, I am committed to providing high-quality and accurate language services to my clients. I understand that language is a powerful tool for communication, and that mistranslations or misunderstandings can result in serious consequences. That's why I always strive to deliver translations and interpretations that capture the nuances and subtleties of the source language while conveying the intended meaning in the target language. Whether you need to translate a legal document, a technical manual, a marketing brochure, a movie, or a website, I am confident that I can help you achieve your goals.

     Thank you for taking the time to read a bit about me. If you have any questions or would like to discuss your language needs, please don't hesitate to contact me. I look forward to working with you!
