Khmer translation services and interpreters in Singapore

People from powerful cultural groups in Thailand, Vietnam and – of course – Cambodia speak Khmer. Asian Absolute’s Khmer translation services and interpreters let companies in Singapore and around the world do business in Cambodia – or anywhere Khmer is being spoken – like a native.

You can accurately localise any text – from your marcoms to legal or financial documents – with ease. You can set up your next business meeting, confident that you will be able to communicate without language barriers.

Why choose Asian Absolute?

You’ll find it easy to localise your document for any audience – no matter what industry you’re in or what Khmer-speaking group you’re targeting. You can also rely on us for flowing, precise Khmer to English translation.

Here’s how it works:

You get your documents translated by a native

There are six main dialects of Khmer. Three spoken in Cambodia. Three elsewhere.

To get the most accurate and compelling English to Khmer translation of your content, you need it to be localised by a native speaker of your specific target dialect. We always match you with one.

Almost uniquely among Language Service Providers, we use a native English-speaking translator for your Khmer to English projects too. It’s the only way to make your final piece read completely naturally to the native eye.

We know your industry’s terminology

Your documents will always be translated by an expert in your field. In addition to being a native speaker, we hand-pick a specialist translator with at least five years of experience and/or qualifications in your field.


  • Work with an award-winning project management team
  • Interpret and translate into or out of any Khmer dialect
  • Get translation into or out of Mandarin, Tamil or Malay with equal ease
  • Ultra-fast turnaround times are provided by our global network
  • Rely on ISO:9001 certified quality standards

    Guinness World Records

    Facts about the Khmer language

    Translating or interpreting from Khmer to English and vice versa can be a challenge. The two languages are very different.

    • Khmer’s sentence structure is topic then comment when spoken aloud
    • The word order is subject-verb-object
    • There are no inflections, case endings or conjugations
    • Grammatical relationships are indicated by particles and auxiliary words

      Khmer dialects

      It’s also important to bear in mind that there are six main dialects of Khmer. Here’s where they’re spoken:

      • Central Khmer/ Standard Khmer (Cambodia, most regional variations)
      • Phnom Penh Khmer (Cambodia, Phnom Penh and surrounding regions)
      • Khmer Khe (Cambodia, Strung Teng province)
      • Northern Khmer/ Khmer Surin (Thailand)
      • Southern Khmer/ Khmer Krom (Vietnam)
      • Western Khmer (Cardamom Mountain dialect)

      Asian Absolute provides Khmer translation services in Singapore and worldwide into and out of all the main dialects.
