      I would try re-downloading the dictionary again – sometimes downloads fail and are incomplete. If the problem persists after you try to download it again, please let us know.

  • Thank you so much. It is great.

  • hello, it says khmer to english dictionary but there is only english to khmer, is there a khmer to english dictionary to download to use with goldendict program?

    • You’re right – this was because the previous dictionary program we used allowed for reverse lookup. GoldenDict did not have this feature but it also worked on Linux and so we began using it. But there is a new version of GoldenDict that allows for reverse lookup you can download here for Windows:
      Then you can use it with our dictionaries. In the near future we will update our build of our dictionary to use this updated version of GoldenDict. Thank you!
