    One of my clients has just asked me to look in to to developing her market in Thailand. Just what the hell, really?

    Luckily most is the same, Facebook, Linkedin, Google. Etc. So at the moment I am using google translate to look through Thai Facebook and Linkedin groups.

    Do I just set up a Facebook/Linkedin account like I would normally, would it be too negative to rely on Google translate or should I pay a professional translator, whats a normal price for a Thai translator?

    Thanks

    I would check out fiverr Thai translation gigs and try to hire someone as VA, or just look for a Thai VA.
