Khmer to English
Khmer (Central) is a language of Cambodia. Central Khmer has a classification of Austro-Asiatic, Mon-Khmer, Eastern Mon-Khmer, and Khmer. Central Khmer is spoken throughout Cambodia, along with Canada, China, France, Laos, USA, and Viet Nam.
There are about 12,110,000 people who speak Khmer (Central) in Cambodia, as of 2004. The total population of all of the Central Khmer speaking people in the world is about 13,276,000 (which means that 1,166,000 people speak Central Khmer outside of Cambodia).
Some other names for Central Khmer are Khmer and Cambodian.
The Central Khmer dialects are different from the Northern Khmer dialects of Thailand.
Central Khmer is an official language and has about 1,000,000 people who speak Central Khmer as a second language. About 35% of the population of Cambodia over 15 years old cannot read or write Khmer. Khmer was first writing during the period of Indian influence and was used in the bible from 1954-1998.
The Khmer alphabet is descended from the Brahmi script of ancient India by way of the Pallava script, which was used in southern India and South East Asia during the 5th and 6th Centuries AD.
The oldest dated inscription in Khmer, found at Angkor Borei in Takev Province south of Phnom Penh, dates from 611 AD.

Things to Consider
There are a wide range cultural aspects in the Khmer speaking world that can vary quite significantly depending on the region. For example, many colors, symbols, and region-specific slang can have unintended implications. It is vital that text be adapted accordingly.
In the translation industry we use the term ‘Transcreation’ to refer to this adaptation of a text to suit the cultural understanding of a specific target audience.
It can be a challenging task for a business to expand into the Khmer market. It’s vitally important that marketing and advertising messages are correctly adapted to this audience, while not compromising the original purpose, style, tone, and context of the message. An awareness of local cultural nuances and adapting your text accordingly is why our Khmer translators only translate into their native tongue.
