In Lao, words are not separated from each other by spaces. Commas are used for minor pauses in sentences, and major pauses are indicated by a period.
The letters of the Lao alphabet are very similar to the Thai alphabet, which has the same roots. To the outside observer they can be differentiated by the more circular style of writing in Lao. Within Thailand, Lao is also written with the Thai alphabet.
About Lao, spaces and commas
In Lao, words are not separated from each other by spaces. Commas are used for minor pauses in sentences, and major pauses are indicated by a period. Since translation technology traditionally revolves around distinct words, 1-StopAsia’s engineers and linguists have to work creatively to reap the same benefit from technologies for terminology control and translation memory.
How 1-StopAsia works?
1-StopAsia’s native Lao translators know how to process the language correctly and what script to employ. Our rigorous quality assurance procedure ensures that your translation is translated and reviewed by a native Lao translator with a specific subject-matter specialty before it is proofread by a second translator. This guarantees that every detail of the document is checked, double-checked, and quality ensured.
