i have a question.. i recently read the book "life of pi", by Yann Martel. I think it is a brilliant book, winner of the booker prize 2002. I wonder if anyone knows if this is already available in Thai ??

i wanted to look for it online, but i have no idea how to write the name "Yann Martel" in Thai script.

Can anyone help ?

This makes me wonder in general if there are any fixed rules about how to translate people's proper names into thai script ? Can an average person write the name of an English person correctly if he just hears this name on tv or on radio ?
