About this app

[Android 11: ThaiDict requires using "Gesture Navigation" for now: see https://word-in-the-hand.com/a11 for details] Whether you're on a short trip to Thailand, working with Thais, or studying the Thai language in-depth, this is the one dictionary you can really use. 195,000+ entries (250,000+ translations), plus a built-in phrasebook with 300+ categories and 12,000+ words and full-text searchable, ready-to-use customizable phrases. Clear native sound recordings for every Thai word—even offline. Favorites screen lets you organize words/phrases in multiple folders. Includes both pronunciation guides (12 different systems) and Thai Script with the Thai and English text as big as you want. Includes a guide to speaking and writing Thai and other mind-blowing features for exploring the Thai language—nothing else even comes close!

== Listen to Any Thai Word

Touch any Thai word/phrase in any of our 195,000+ entries to hear a high-quality sound recording of a native speaker, not a toneless gravelly robot as found in other software—more than 29 hours of studio-recorded sound. Long-press to hear 2x/4x slow playback with no change in pitch.

== No Connection Required and No Data Charges

Works even when you're in a taxi or street market and not connected to the internet: all entries and sounds are stored right on your Android phone or tablet, and you will incur no data charges.

== Big Text and Clear, Clean Layout

Make the Thai and English text as big as you want—no more reading glasses! Easily scroll through multiple, full definitions on the screen at once. Customize layout. Choose standard OR big-key Thai keyboard.

== A Dictionary Crafted for Those Learning Thai

Unlike typical dictionaries based on low-quality, free internet data meant for Thai natives, our superb dictionary entries are hand-crafted by Paiboon Publishing with your needs in mind: if you're not familiar with the Thai alphabet, you can even look up Thai words by their sound using an easy-to-read pronunciation guide system (12 popular systems are supported). All Thai words in every section are written using both Thai Script and your chosen pronunciation guide system(s).

Unlike dictionaries meant for Thais, we clarify critical shades of Thai word meaning and formality using English explanations, we list crucial Thai classifiers for more than 60,000 noun entries, and we even notate syllable stress.

== Built-In Phrasebook

Beginner or advanced, communicate in Thai easily! 12,000+ phrasebook entries in 300+ categories like “Language Difficulties,” “Hotel,” “Renting a Place,” “Food/Drink,” “Price Haggling,” “Transportation,” “Health,” “Shopping,” “Sightseeing,” “Love/Romance/Sex” and even “Swearing/Insults.” Two-way conversational format helps both of you communicate.

== Introduction to Thai Included

More than just a dictionary, our software includes a comprehensive introduction to the Thai language, including a "Speaking and Understanding" section with clickable sounds and detailed grammar coverage, and a "Reading and Writing" section with all the consonants and vowels in multiple, real-world fonts.

== Unique Thai Learning Tools

This app is loaded with amazing, industry-first Thai learning tools. You can touch any word to find out which component Thai words it's made from: a great way to learn new words quickly. You can see any Thai word written in multiple real-word fonts you are likely to see on signs and menus. You can touch any Thai word to see a detailed interactive breakdown of how to pronounce each syllable (with clickable sounds that let you compare nearby sounds) or see a detailed visual explanation of its Thai spelling. Our website has more details and pictures.

I've been happy with this ap. Just started using it then noticed I was missing a needed symbol. I emailed to see if I could get a refund and had a response within minutes. They explained there are a few different keyboards within this app. Within a few minutes, I had what I needed and was pleased with the prompt help. If you have this same problem, go to the app, settings, the pronunciation guides and you should be able to find what you need.

Very good dictionary that has gotten better over the years. That I bought it about 10 years ago and they're still making improvements to it for no extra charge is pretty phenomenal. If there were an area to improve I would say adding a feature to look up common phrases would be it

Dictionary is no longer talking after upgrading to Android 12 the Dictionary does not speak the words, there is no sound in the app now. I love this app, I hope this problem can be fixed, being able to hear the correct pronunciation is very important. UPDATE: fixed. I went to Sounds and vibration" settings menu, selected "Sound quality and effects" and turned on "Dolby Atmos for gaming". Sound in the dictionary was restored.
