Google In Khmer

Google in Khmer is up and running at www.google.com.kh. Khmer Google (The translation of 'I'm Feeling Lucky' is funny but I wonder if people will click on it. ) It's been in development for some time, but a link on the main page to Google Khmer went live about a day ago, if you're checking from Cambodia. I haven't spotted a press release so I think it's in beta. Even several months ago Khmer queries were working, but there wasn't much indexing. A number of internet cafes are defaulting to this when people hit Google search. But for some it just appears as a string of question marks and gobbledygook. Virak and I were checking it out last night; it's in Khmer Unicode! Between this and the Cambodia Yellow Pages using the same standards, it's a strong incentive to install unicode and get up to speed. Postscript: Wanna has been keeping a close eye on this development, check out his blog for the very latest. http://blog.icambo.com/2006/12/khmerized-google-released.html And KI-Media cites an article from the Cambodia Daily. http://ki-media.blogspot.com/2006/12/google-launches-khmer-language-version.html Tags: ,

I am a Canadian who has been living in Sihanoukville for almost 2 years. I have set up a
foundation to school as many poor khmer children as possible. On Christmas day I will be swimming handcuffed for 24 hours non-stop to raise awareness and money to school more kids. I was wondering if you wouldn't mind mentioning my foundation on your website and/or spreading the word. My website is www.joebodia.com and you will be able to find a press release about the swim there. Sorry about the informal e-mail but I desperately need the Cambodian bloggers to spread the word.
Cheers much,
Matt Frame
