Thailand is a beautiful country rich in culture, geology and exquisite delicacies. Those visiting here on business or extended personal travel quickly encounter unique and often challenging barriers for communication between the local Thais and those wishing to interact.

For complex situations where nothing can be left to chance, Chiang Mai Buddy offers a live translation facilitation support service for English-speaking individuals and business people here in Chiang Mai and surrounding areas.
