If you haven’t yet, make sure and check out www.glosbe.com Already there are quite a few entries for Khmer to English (including the SBBIC dictionary), and more is on the way! It is also very easy for others to collaborate by editing/adding new translations so it has great potential!
We’ve been working on getting code into ICU to allow Khmer Unicode to automatically break between words and the newest release of ICU now includes a Khmer word breaker. But access is difficult (unless you are a programmer). So we have made a small program that uses ICU and will allow you to use the Khmer word breaker in Linux (Windows will come soon). We’ve only tested this on Ubuntu 11.x so please test it and let us know if you have any problems. There is still room for improvement, so please let us know how it works for you.…
This latest release includes the ability to ensure all quotes and brackets have been closed as well as adds some additional word-coherency checks (to make sure you followed the same style of spelling throughout your document – our list adheres to Chuan Nath’s spelling whenever possible). This extension can be used with: OpenOffice and LibreOffice which are both free, and opensource word processors. Please let us know in the comments if you have any trouble, or would like any additions to the grammar checker. DOWNLOAD: [Download not found]

We hope the new features will remove some of the problems our users have been having with the Khmer portion of the site. If you are interested in helping with translation of the site, please let us know in the comments. Thank you!
UPDATE: Our solution does not yet work perfectly – line-breaks do not work with a hair space, so we are still in the process with Adobe trying to find a solution that will work without any issue. With the release of InDesign CS 5.5 Hunspell dictionaries are now supported. This means we can use the SBBIC spelling dictionary with InDesign! There are some issues though, because InDesign was not tested fully with Khmer, but we are able to get around them (even though it makes things a bit complex). Right now our solution is MAC ONLY because I don’t have…
