Khmer translation on Google Translate

Facebook users have probably realised that Google Translate now includes the Khmer language on its website.

The good news spread rapidly via Facebook. However, the new translation program brings problems. The Facebook page Health Time has pointed out that many of the Khmer translations are incorrect.

Health Time has also provided helpful tips to correct the errors: “Try to translate some words. If you see mistakes, please click on the right sign, and choose the words Not Helpful. Then please click on the wrongly translated words and then fill the right one.”

Bad translations can also be corrected on Google Translate. Health Time says to follow these steps: 1. Go to translate.google.com. 2. Choose translate from any language to Khmer. 3. Type the word you want Google to translate. 4. If you see it’s not correct, click on the sign as mentioned in the picture and select Not Helpful. 5. Click on the Khmer words that you think are wrong and start correcting.

  • Em Rithy: I know I have change successfully but I want to ask you: when I change, can people see my corrections?
  • Health Time: Em Rithy, not immediately after you changed anything because Google reserves the right to avoid those who do messy changes, so they will develop it step by step.
  • EmRithy: Thanks

The information from Health Times is very important for Cambodians. Also, it makes our Cambodian Facebook users aware of the problems and helps correct the mistakes.  ​
