    Does Google translate get anything right?

    an actual question dose this mean studying การศึกษา and this mean stress เน้น.
    making sure googel translate is not saying something totally wrong, incase it causes me problems chatting to aorasa + helps me learn a little thai as i go.

    I have found Google Translate very good. If you have a long passage or sentence to translate its not too good, but you get the gist of it. Translate it back and see what you get.

    Thai to English dictionary, translation & transliteration - Thai2English

    This one works but you still have to understand where the conversation is going.
    Bing, is crap

    Make sure you spell it correctly in the first place... or you might get a dose of something unpleasant.. 55

    เน้น, nyn, pronunciation. Means to emphasize ; stress ; accentuate and yes the other word is broken into two parts spoken together gaan suk-săa translate, education ; study ; learning
    Hope it helps fella.

    A lot depends on the input.

    Good to have, you. On this platform. (To bugger you)

    Google translate for Thai is not so good IMHO.

    การศึกษา (gaan seuk saa) is a noun (e.g. education), for studying (verb) you'll just want เรียน (riian)

    In most cases it's good enough to get the gist of what's being communicated.

    But care take to do not make for serious business communication paper, as this can cause to come into practice minor confusion.

    Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

    fixed what ever the hell that was in the original post.
    nope i am determined to learn at least one second language in my life, for some reason Thai seems simpler than the european languages (except Spanish which i must learn) maybe deceptively so.

    Kudos to you if you want to learn a second language. Take it from me that was hard to speak my native language ....a similar alphabet makes it a whole lot easier if learn another language is your only goal.

    If you want some Thai translated that is special we can help. Using google translate for any language is dangerous for the purposes of love or business. Those situations that must get it correct.

    Why must you learn Spanish?

    It sounds like the Spanish Inquisition.
