Understanding Thai Font Used on Nokia Cell Phone

Recommended Posts

I've got a Nokia cell phone (purchased here in Pattaya) that can do both English and Thai fonts. And I've got a tilac now who has very limited ability to write in English (but speaks it noticeably better than she writes it). Therefore, she's fond of texting me in Thai characters (which I'm okay with, as I'd like to improve my Thai language skills).

 

Here's my problem ... the Thai font used on internet sites and in language books (my sources for learning to write and read Thai characters) looks quite a bit more detailed and precise than the Thai font used on my cell phone (the latter almost looks like a very shorthand version).

 

As a result I can make out only some of the characters and I find it nearly impossible to accurately write Thai script when texting (not being able to tell which characters or marks are which, in many cases).

 

[i notice that the Thai fonts used in newspapers also look "streamlined", though not by as much.]

 

Is there an easy way to match up the letters, characters and marks from the Nokia Thai font with the standard versions that one would get in language books or on the internet? Sort of a Rosetta stone to match up the two types of font against one another?

 

Thanks much.

You may be able to load a different font onto your phone.

Another way may be to download the text to your computer and paste into Word. You may be able to change the font then

... paste into Word

 

Ah, I hadn't thought of that (I didn't know data could be transferred from my phone to my computer) ... will try that. I've found some software on the internet (Nokia Suite) but I don't have Bluetooth on my computer so I'll pop by Tuk.com this evening and see if I can get a cable that will fit my phone (I assume it goes in the opening where headphones would be plugged into the phone?) and has a USB port on the other end.

 

Much appreciated!

You would need a mini USB port on your phone.

Link shows you the more common connection port. If you have a cable for downloading photos from a camera, you may find that it fits.

I bought a Nokia connector cable some time ago in Dtuk com, about 100 Baht I think.

Or you could just learn it with Talking Thai dictionary.

 

There is a section that shows all the different fonts used (e.g. basic,sign,newspaper,modern,handwriting) and I've been using it alot with some Thai comics that i've been reading.
