Simply type a Thai or English word in the search box that appears at the top of every page and click the "Dictionary-Search" button (or hit the Enter key).  This will perform a search for the word in the dictionary database.  

If you don't know how to spell the word, typing the beginning of the word normally renders adequate search results.  The dictionary will automatically detect what language you are searching in.

Dictionary Search Results

The dictionary search results will provide Thai words transcribed with roman letters if available.  Thai letters are hard to read in the beginning of the learning process, so we've provided a link to an image with very big letters next to each Thai translation. Look for this symbol:  

Using Thai Letters – Thai Keyboard

If you search the dictionary using a Thai word, make sure you use Thai script.  You can use the Virtual Thai Keyboard, and then cut and paste the Thai word into the search box.

Reverse Lookup

The Dictionary has added a new reverse lookup feature that allows you to look up the translated word by its definition in the opposite language.

For example, if you look up the word "tax" in the English to Thai dictionary it will render a search result with the Thai word ภาษี. Next to the word ภาษี you can find the link "reverse lookup".  If you click that link, it will search for the Thai word ภาษี in the Thai to English dictionary.  It will render English words related to “tax” that maybe you wouldn't think of otherwise.  The reverse dictionary lookup is useful for finding synonyms and you can use it as a thesaurus.

Browsing the English and Thai Dictionaries

You can also browse the English to Thai dictionary and the Thai to English dictionary by letters.  When browsing you will see the dictionary entries in alphabetical order and you can jump to any page you want.  

This function is also available in Thai with all the 42 Thai consonants.  Thai alphabetical order ignores preceding vowels, so you browse the Thai dictionary by selecting the first Thai consonant in the word.  Just click the letter to browse to the desired page in the dictionary.  If you choose the letter in the English browse function, "L", the L-words will most likely not start at the top of that page so you would typically have to scroll down a bit on the dictionary page.

The English to Thai and Thai to English dictionary are free online translation dictionaries.  There are more than 120,000+ English words and phrases translated from English to Thai and there are more than 80,000+ Thai words and phrases translated from Thai to English.
