Are there any modern sutta translations available in Thai, possibly online, not printed, although printed ones would be nice, too.

I understand that the existing volumes of the suttas in Thai contain a rather antiquated type of translation, cumbersome to read...

I am guessing you mean translations in standard Thai rather than Ratchasap. Ven. Dhammanando mentioned in the Monk's Curriculum thread that Bhikkhu Buddhadasa did a few, but that he didn't know of anyone else.

If you do find some, report back your findings.

The Sutta Central https://suttacentral.net/ including thai. I do not know thai well enough to evaluate them, but they may be worth a look.

พุทธวจนะในธรรมบท (Sathienpong Wannapok’s translation of the Dhammapada into non-Rajasap literary Thai). It also has a good English translation by him.

คู่มืออุบาสก อุบาสิกา (The chanting book of Wat Suan Mokkh with Ajahn Buddhadāsa’s interlinear Thai translation. As well as the standard Thai morning and evening chanting it also contains a selection of passages from those Suttas that Ajahn Buddhadāsa was particularly fond of).

Audio of the evening chanting (Pali and Thai translation) of the above book by the monks of Wat Suan Mokkh

Same for the morning chanting, together with the chanting book’s Sutta passages.

“Keep to your own pastures, bhikkhus, walk in the haunts where your fathers roamed.
If ye thus walk in them, Māra will find no lodgement, Māra will find no foothold.”

I appreciate all the valuable answers here. I am just in the beginning of learning Thai, but am glad to be able to point friends to these resources. It is possibly also helpful when discussing some aspects of the suttas with Thais, and encouraging them to get a first-hand experience in reading some of them.

Thank you, Ven. Gavesako.

Most Thai language resources online range from poor quality to good quality. Would you know if it is accurate and well made?

It says in the introduction of the document that there are audio files to accompany the book. Would you know if these are available online?
