Buddhist texts typically would be written in Pali, the language of Buddhism, but I gather that Buddhist countries in Asia have adapted their local alphabetic scripts for writing in Pali. This includes Thai language and its close relative Lao, which may be spoken in one dialect or another by the Dai/傣 people, the Tai relatives living in Xishuangbanna.
Khmer and Burmese also have their own Pali scripts, and there's a certain fluidity, as some Khmer Pali documents found in my online search were attributed to Thailand, which is home to a number of Khmer archeological ruins. However, with patience, you may be able to coax enough examples out of Google to identify which language is used in your documents. Just watch out for those scripts with secondary attributions.
