    Thai-English translators needed


    Next week, beginning on the 13th of January, historic events are set to unfold in the Kingdom of Thailand.


    Massive numbers of people from around the Kingdom will head to Bangkok in an attempt to unseat the current government. My estimation is that eventually they will succeed, but at cost. They are willing to pay in time or blood. This is not brinksmanship by the people. Potential for war is palpable.


    As Thai confront the government, their cause is grossly misunderstood in the foreign press. The descriptions about this in the international press typically are far from true.


    The results of this time will have a great impact on all Thai, and all foreigners living here. It will impact all the neighboring countries, and the United States.


    I live in Thailand and will be at the protests and then will begin another travel around the Kingdom. My day-to-day work will begin in English on Facebook. My major pieces will go to


    Several translators are needed. (One translator will not be able to keep up with me.) A translator must be fluent at the graduate level in both English and Thai. The translator’s Thai must be perfect with an eye for detail.


    Volunteer only. Your heart must be in it. When the action begins, I am “on” 24/7.


    If interested, please email: Please put “Translation” in the subject heading.


    Thank you.
