Cambodia Android Users Group, CAUG, a group of Android lover who have helped Cambodia to have Khmer Unicode on Android phones presented at recent Barcamp Battambang last week at BBU.
They make t-shirt with CAUG logo to sell in order to support their mission: “We need Khmer language on Android” and also to donate some of the money for charity to Angkor Hospital (Children’s Hospitals).
I’m very appreciate their effort and thanks for their heart for our children.

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.
