Khmer translation and interpreting services in London and the UK
Catapult yourself to the forefront of markets across South-East Asia with our specialist Khmer translation and interpreting services – designed for UK businesses and used by clients across the world. We’ll help you communicate like a native-speaking professional would. Whether that means enabling you to confidently meet with a prospective local business partner, making your marketing collateral culturally persuasive, or correctly completing Khmer legal or medical documents.
Because make no mistake, Khmer can be a very difficult language to deal in. It has a general sentence structure where the topic is often listed before the actual comment – and there’s a complete absence of conjugations, inflections and case endings…
But there are 16 million native speakers of the main Central Khmer dialect alone. These include many people from powerful cultural groups in Thailand and Vietnam as well as Cambodia.
Why choose Asian Absolute?
Asian Absolute’s translation services in London, the UK and around the world are conducted exclusively by native-speaking linguists. For you, this means that you will automatically be in tune with regional customs, cultural preferences and styles. In short, you’ll be able to communicate in Khmer like a local.
It also means you can also rely on an equal level of experience when you need to translate Khmer to English. In this case, our native English-speaking linguists will ensure that any key concepts and terms are properly localised to carry the same connotations and weight with the English-speaking audience in the part of the world you are targeting.

Guinness World Records
What you need to lnow about the Khmer language
The Khmer language has a number of different dialects depending on where and by whom it is being spoken. Approximately 79% of Cambodians can read Khmer, making it a solid choice for marketing in that country. The following Khmer dialects are spoken in Cambodia:
- Central Khmer– is the most-spoken dialect. Most central and regional variations within Cambodia are grouped under Central Khmer.
- Phnom Penh Khmer– the dialect of the capital city.
- Khmer Ke– the dialect of a city in Stung Treng province.
Outside of Cambodia, you’ll find three other main dialects spoken in:
- Northeast Thailand – here you will find speakers of the Northern Khmer
- Vietnam– is home to speakers of the Southern Khmer dialect, also called Khmer Krom.
- The Cardamom mountains– there is a dialect of the language spoken by remote communities in this specific part of the world. It’s worth noting that the Cardamom mountains do have increasing tourist trade every year.
