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 included. 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 a countryside street market and not connected to the internet: all entries and sounds are stored right on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, and you will incur no data charges when you use the app. == 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, complete definitions on the screen at once. Customize layout. == 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). Hear somebody say "sa nuk?" Type "sa nuk" to find out what it means. 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, interactive 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—indispensable for learning how to read and write Thai. Nothing like this has ever appeared in any dictionary software on any platform. == Buy ThaiDict Now! Don't go another day without this indispensable tool!

Talking Thai <> English Dictionary+Phrasebook App Reviews

  • Superb interface and extremely useful

    By MarcusSyl
    I have used this app daily for more than two years and it’s a great companion when learning the language. The interface is a breeze, words can easily be found and explored, the voice recordings are very clear and can be listened to in slow mode. I find particularly useful the possibility to collect words in lists - then being able to listen to all words as they are played in order, fast and slow. A lot of other functions to be explored and enjoyed and that will fit many different learning styles. As all apps it has limitations - the app from has a larger number of words, more detailed explanation of meaning and many examples of use for the words, but when the two apps are used together only a few words are absent. But as a fast and convenient tool for easy reference regarding basics this app is the best.
  • The best

    By jeremyaadams
    Don’t let the old school looking app icon fool you. This is a great app! It is worth the price. There are countless phrases here all with a native speaker pronouncing them with the Thai tones. I would love to see an update with added functionality but even without an update this is a must have app to learn Thai.
  • the best ever

    By Penguine5
    This app is the best dictionary and phrase usage there is. The audio is a major plus along with the written tone marks for the words. But for me the best ability is to see the words inside the word you are looking up. For example, "to travel" is made up of the combined words เดิน and ทาง to make a new word เดินทาง. This is very helpful in memorizing vocabulary.
  • Amazed

    By Slave to Christ
    Thanks for the hard work. This app is not only extremely useful, it’s easy to use and in every detail practical, yet above and beyond in the work put in to create an app that’s so much more than just another dictionary. Next to a classroom or personal tutor this app is most useful. Also so useful in the classroom or on the streets of Thailand. Thanks!
  • The best there is

    By SBettina
    I have never written an app review, but this is hands down the best Thai language app available. It is expensive compared to the others, but 100% worth it. I’d honestly say it’s worth a whole lot more than the purchase price considering the immense amount of content that it provides. Having an actual Thai person pronounce each word is an indispensable feature. I recently moved to Thailand and can say that this is without a doubt the best Thai language learning product that I have bought, and I’ve bought quite a few! Quit thinking about it and just buy it already.
  • Best Thai App

    By Jeremy Mossa
    Tried Thai language apps on android and iOS. This is the best of the bunch ... you get what you pay for.
  • Best App!!

    By Frick yeahs
    Seriously the best app and worth the money. Every bit worth the money. One thing... the Haas keyboard needs the glottal stop option for beginning of words. There are many words that can’t be searched for because this option isn’t there. At least I can’t find it. Thanks.
  • This is THE app

    By ohzonator
    Just buy it. I’ve been here 16 years and I use it nearly daily. I have studied all of Benjawan’s books — she is the reason I can speak Thai. Thank you, Khun Benjawan 🙏🏼
  • Great App !!!

    By Ray Global
    Easy to use and very helpful. Pronounces words for me to learn. Also useful word categories, eg. Food etc. Well done! Please continue to maintain and update app
  • Beware of update

    By dmanqrstxyz
    Avoid this update. You will be disappointed with this new version. Cluttered, clumsy, klutzy and confusing. Not just an elegant, simple and easy to use dictionary anymore. Also if you had managed to not update and had continued to use the older, simpler, easier version, BEWARE of UPDATING to the new version of IOS. YOU WILL BE FORCED TO UPDATE to this newest, clumsy, cluttered, trying to be everything to everybody, ugly version. Phooey! Grade F.
