Khmer Translation World

Posted by seryboth on December 27, 2013

Most of the time we always hear about the complaints of many clients who have their technical documents translated by the translating agencies related to the fields of practical science, including pharmaceutical/ medical, constructional, automotive, legal, banking/financing, agriculture sectors, etc. They complain the translation agencies that cannot provide them with accurate and specific products of translation as they expected. This is because they do not come to the right agency, which can provide them with specific and accurate product of translation. Furthermore, large numbers of people are complaining about difficulties in seeking for translating and interpreting agencies to enable their effective and efficient communication with people using different languages.

Having seen such an aspect, Khmer World 1 Translation is established with its main purpose to substantially minimize barriers in cross-language communication where translation and interpreting are indispensably required.

Songkran means that the day ended of a year and beginning of a new year—new year ceremony; it is the originally Khmer word about new year and an almanac. Mouha Songkran is a book published every year which contains information about the moments of the planets, the changes of the moon, the tides, the date of important anniversaries, events connected with a particular subject or activity, facts and statistics about that activity.

The New Year ceremonies takes three to four days, if a year takes four days, then the second and third day of the four-days New Year we call Vonabot. The last day is called Laeung Sak, the day to increment Sak.

Day 1 is Songkran

People prepare items and food as offerings to the New Year angel. Food is selected especially to match the New Year angel’s taste, her favorite food, her jewelry, the animals she ride and the weapons she carries which are written by Hora(celebrants).

at hour of Songkran or when the angel arrives, family members burn the incenses and candles, they spray perfumes to welcome the angel and wish for longevity, peace, and wealth.

People bring food offering to the temple in the morning and then listen to monk chanting. In the afternoon, they take sand to build sand hill next to the temple or Bodhi tree. In the evening, people offer drinks to monks and invite monks to chant.

Khmer Language – ភាសាខ្មែរ

Posted by seryboth on January 13, 2011

Khmer (ភាសាខ្មែរ), or Cambodian, is the language of the Khmer people and the official language of Cambodia. It is the second most widely spoken Austroasiatic language (after Vietnamese), with speakers in the tens of millions. Khmer has been considerably influenced by Sanskrit and Pali, especially in the royal and religious registers, through the vehicles of Hinduism and Buddhism. It is also the earliest recorded and earliest written language of the Mon-Khmer family, predating Mon and by a significant margin Vietnamese. As a result of geographic proximity, the Khmer language has influenced, and also been influenced by; Thai, Lao, Vietnamese and Cham many of which all form a pseudo-sprachbund in peninsular Southeast Asia, since most contain high levels of Sanskrit and Pali influences.

Khmer has its own script, an abugida known in Khmer as Aksar Khmer. Khmer differs from neighboring languages such as Thai, Lao and Vietnamese in that it is not a tonal language.
