Khmer Unicode actually doesn’t need to be installed on Windows 8, it’s just a matter of getting more fonts and a Khmer Unicode keyboard installed so you can utilize Khmer Unicode on Windows 8.

If you want the Windows 8 interface to be in Khmer, you can install the Khmer language pack.

You’ll need to download the language pack if you want to make a language your Windows display language (that’s the language you see most often in Windows and apps).


  1. Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings.
    (If you’re using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up, click Settings, and then click Change PC settings.)

  2. Tap or click Time and language, and then tap or click Region and language.

  3. Tap or click a language that says Language pack available underneath, and then tap or click Options.

  4. Tap or click Download. The download process might take a while, depending on your PC and the size of the language pack.

    If you want to make this your display language, see the next section “Change your Windows display language”.

    • The best way to insure that a phone can read Khmer text on a website is to include a font in the header and call it with a style in CSS. We use the Google Font API (https://www.google.com/fonts#ChoosePlace:select/Script:khmer) for this site. For example, in your website header, include this line (it will change depending on the font you choose): Then you can call that font in your css whenever you want and the Khmer font will display correctly, even if the viewer doesn’t have Khmer installed (as long as the device supports Khmer).
      So you could make a CSS style in your CSS file like this:
      font-family: Hanuman !important;

      Then in html, call the css style with a div tag around text in html:
      <div class=”khmer_text”>ជំរាបសួរ</div>

      I might write up a post about this with more detailed instructions in Khmer, but as Khmer is my second language I thought I would reply now in English. Does that help?
