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.

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.

“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.

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.

Khmer Handwriting Available in Google Translate

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.

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
