With first release of Google translation for Khmer language, of course, there are many translation mistakes that need time to correct for more accuracy in the future.
BUT we, Cambodians, can be a part to help this translator works better for us by contributing our correction day by day.
As stated in Google translation blog about Khmer language:
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).
And we know that our language is complicated in computing modelling and processing.
So we need time and our own helps.

Non-khmer speaking netizens around the world may be able to read and understand Khmer-language websites as soon as the end of the year, if the planned release of Google’s Khmer translation feature goes according to schedule.
The tool has been in the works for about five years and now it is being tested internally now.
That’s a very good move. Thanks to Google, Open Institute and all other involved parties to make this happen. Hope we will have it soon in this year.
We have it now, Khmer language is already available on Google translator.
