According to a 2015 research study by the Open Institute and the Asia Foundation collected in September 2015 shows that Cambodia’s phone market is already saturated, with over 94% of Cambodians claiming to own their own phone, and more than 99% being reachable through some sort of phone. The proportion of citizens using more than one phone was only 13.1% while one Cambodian in four uses more than one operator. These numbers are similar to those reported in previous years.

The results show that 63.3% of Cambodians own phones with Khmer script capability. The use of such phones is more common among men (67.6%) than women (49%) and more common in urban areas (67%) than rural (61.7%).

Some 39.5% of users were found to have at least one smartphone. The ability of phones to display Khmer is more common in smartphones (78%) than in dumb phones (56.3%). The capability of smartphones users’ ability to display Khmer improved with the education level of their owner.


It was found that almost a third of Cambodians have access to the Internet and Facebook and that most of the people in this group have their own Facebook accounts. Smartphones are by far the most common means of accessing Facebook; only 3% of users access the social media site solely through computers while 80% access it exclusively through phones.

Internet/Facebook use has risen to become in 2015 the second most important channel for Cambodians to access information—trailing the only TV (30% vs 24%)—having surpassed radio (20%) and continuing to gain market share yearly.

To increase the rate of adoption, the development of better text-prediction and input methods for Khmer script in phones is recommended.

Phnom Penh, Friday 2nd October 2015: Google announced it will host its first “Love Your Language Cambodia” translate-a-thon campaign this weekend (October 2-3) in a dedicated effort to reduce the language barrier for Khmer speakers on the web, at home and around the world, through crowd-sourced translations.

Love Your Language Cambodia Event
Google is inviting Cambodian translators, language experts and language lovers to help improve the quality of Khmer translations online. Google Asia Pacific's Amy Kunrojpanya, Head of Public Affairs & Communications for New Emerging Markets, explained, “We believe Google tools in the hands of our Cambodian users can help build a web that works for this country, its people and the Khmer language. We're introducing the Love Your Language campaign to open up the technology that powers Google Translate to communities passionate about their language in Cambodia. Working together we can improve the understanding and quality of Khmer translations, which in turn can help preserve and promote Cambodian culture and language online.”
Google Translate Community, a free crowdsourced translation tool, works with just few clicks or swipes on a mobile phone, tablet or laptop, and even just a few minutes can help millions of Cambodians around the world receive better translations. Google has also introduced Google Handwriting Input for Khmer, which gives internet users a simple way to input text on their smartphone or tablet by writing out Khmer characters with their finger or stylus pen. For those who find it difficult to use small keyboards in complex language scripts, or for older internet users who find typing to be a barrier, Google Handwriting can help them gain access to Khmer web content and the wider world.
Ms. Amy presenting about Google Translate

Google will hold a series of Love Your Language translation-a-thons in Phnom Penh from October 2-4, in partnership with the Royal University of Phnom Penh, the University of Puthisastra, Phnom Penh International University and local Google Developer Groups. Can’t make it to an event? You can still help contribute online at g.co/translate/community.


“If you’ve got accesses to the internet, no matter what device you have, you can help improve Khmer online. So why not take a few moments and let your feedback help millions?” added Ms. Kunrojpanya.

Chamnan joining Love Your Language Cambodia Event
During the launch, I was also participanting and one point I learnt from her sharing was "If you want to help your language more popular online, please use it much on the net (website posts, articles on Wikipedia, blog posts, social media posts ...). Personally, I am the one of translation contributors in Cambodia, and I take some minutes in helping translations on this community few times per week.  So, have you tried to help our, Khmer language, contribution yet?

Google Invites Cambodia to Love Your Language Online

Google Translate Available in Khmer writing

After Google Translate team gave Cambodian users a gift during Khmer New Year 2013 in putting Khmer language as its 66th supported language, the team [both Cambodian & head office engineers] work hard to improve the quality of translations and other new features available for us to use for free - according to the official blog post in January 2015, Google released another feature on Instant translation with Word Lens, and Khmer handwriting feature  to be included with as well.
The Translate app already lets you use camera mode to snap a photo of text and get a translation for it in 36 languages. Now, we’re taking it to the next level and letting you instantly translate text using your camera—so it’s way easier to navigate street signs in the Italian countryside or decide what to order off a Barcelona menu. While using the Translate app, just point your camera at a sign or text and you’ll see the translated text overlaid on your screen—even if you don't have an Internet or data connection.
This instant translation currently works for translation from English to and from French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish, and we’re working to expand to more languages.

In Word Lens feature, you can translate into Khmer language too.

Google Translate Traffic Usage in Cambodia
According to Google Transparency Report - browse real-time traffic to Google products and services, it shows that Google Translate service in Cambodia is increasing year by year since the product launched in Khmer language. So, it is our great opportunity to get more updates and other investments from Google soon.

Let get your app updated now and  transform your mobile device into an even more powerful translation tool!

Do you have any idea on this new feature, and what upcoming features will you expect to get from? Personally, I am waiting to get another feature of Voice recognition in Khmer. How about yours?Please express below.

Khmer Handwriting Available in Google Translate

During the first Google event in Cambodia, DevFest Phnom Penh 2013, last week, Mr. Divon Lan who is a Product Manager Emerging Market, Google, said that Khmer language will be included into Android 4.4 or so-called Android KitKat while he presented a Keynote by Google Representative "Innovation at Google".

The good news it will be an alert for long-waiting android users in Cambodia to hear their language officially released in this new version of Android OS; meaning that from Android 4.4 up to, we no need to root or install any apps to use Khmer Unicode anymore, the language will be embedded into Android firmware. Are you happy to hear that?

The Android will use the Google font “Noto Sans Khmer, it is similar to Nokora” which designed by Mr. Danh Hong. Have you checked it out on any Android devices with the version yet?

I am so happy to see Khmer language included in Android 4.4.
Note: All new features will be released firstly into all Google devices OS such as Nexus 5, if interested buy it here (it's not available to purchase online in Cambodia market yet)! 

Finally, Cambodian Android users will enjoy using their language easily. And I would like to thank for Android developer team and Cambodian related institutes or persons who make the nation language appears in this Google product, Android KitKat.

Let's use our language as much as possible in order to improve or promote our nation!

Khmer Language Officially Be in Android 4.4, KitKat

As my previous article about Khmer language listed in Google Translate during April 2013, and presently Google Street View project in Cambodia has been implementing nationwide - these all are the emerging investment of Google into Cambodia, so have you known today how many Google services which are available in Khmer language?

Personally there are three services (not count Google Search "Web & Image") available in Khmer now; they are Google Translate, Google Maps, and Google Drive.

How can I view them in Khmer language?
So, which Internet browser you use? I recommend using Google Chrome because it is faster and secure especially while using the Google services. Ok, any browser you want it! through my experiences it has two ways to view in Khmer (Google translate and Google Maps):

First trick: You have to go to address by typing the Google website into (www.google.com or www.google.com.kh) then select or choose interface to Khmer (as mentioned below the search box), and last you can go to each service, so you can view it in Khmer.

Second trick: You have to type this following address to view of:
- Google Translate: translate.google.com/?hl=km
- Google Maps: maps.google.com/?hl=km
So, it will show you in Khmer language all.

As for how to view Google Drive, please follow the below:
- Go to your Google Drive (https://drive.google.com/) , next go to Settings tab (at the top-right corner of browser) -> Go to Settings -> In General section: Language, choose Khmer language (ខ្មែរ) by scrolling at the bottom-> last, please Save your change.
Enjoy!! Now you can view the Khmer language as needed!

Finally, I hope sooner we might view in Khmer language of more Google services.

How Many Google Services Available in Khmer Language?

This morning while I am checking my Google+ profile, I got an notification alert from community of GDG Phnom Penh that shared a post about Khmer Language available on Google Translate. The news, it makes me feel so happy to hear, I think this info we are Khmer/Cambodian waiting for long.

It's a special gift for Cambodian users on occasion of Khmer New Year 2013.


What Google Translate team say about Khmer language for their service?
Today’s Khmer launch comes with these useful features: virtual keyboard (in case you want to type in Khmer but do not have Khmer keyboard handy) and ability to read Khmer text phonetically for users who don't read Khmer alphabet.
Google Translate Khmer Keyboard - Image source: Google Translate Blog
Khmer is a challenging language for translation systems for two reasons: There isn’t a lot of Khmer data on the web and words are not usually separated by spaces; so in addition to teaching our translation system a new language, it also has to learn how to separate words (what we call segmentation).

Over time, we will improve the system and make our Khmer translations better. We constantly improve our algorithm when we find new translations and learn from your alternative translations.
Thanks you - អរគុណអ្នក
Would you like to check this "Thanks you" on it? Find it here!

Finally, our language is stated on Google Translate. Bravo... Cambodia, Kingdom of Wonder!!!

In personal, I would appreciate for Google Translate team and Cambodian Khmer language team for your hard effort to make it worldwide available. Thank you all so much!

We, Cambodian users, are pleased to see our language available in Microsoft Office (as interface or User Interface). And I, myself, would like to thank for related person in helping or translating our language with this popular office application.
You will ask or wonder What LIP means? Yeah, here it's: The Office Language Interface Pack (LIP) is a translated User Interface that installs on top of a copy of Microsoft Office 2003, 2007 or 2010, and can be downloaded and installed for free. With the LIP download, you can use Microsoft Excel, OneNote (Office 2010 only), Outlook, PowerPoint and Word features in a different language. After you have installed the LIP, you can change languages through Microsoft Office Language Preferences to see a translated user interface.
Nearly all available LIP languages also include a spelling checker. Translated Help is not part of the LIP download package, but may be available as a separate download for your selected language.
(***) If a language is available in a language pack or as a fully localized version, it is not available as a language interface pack. If the language you want is not listed here, please go to Office Language Packs (for Microsoft Office 2010). [Available LIP Downloads]

 I feel happy to see our language, Khmer Unicode, available in a most popular social media, Facebook website and other private or state ones. One day of January 2012, when I went to Cellcard Depo along the Kampuchea Krom Blvd waiting the customer service staff to be asked, I got on the circle chair to surf the internet that's free for all waiting customers, Wow!!! it made me more surprised (in my feeling) because I also won a Cellcard Cash Promotion on the day, and another one I surfed the Facebook's website (Facebook.com) then I took a look at the left-bottom finding Khmer Language; It's the second place showing it. So from now on, our Cambodian users or other users who know our language can register or change to ours (language, Khmer) by accessing to the default Facebook website or using this URL: http://km-kh.facebook.com. For official Facebook in Khmer Language interface, please see the below photo.
