Khmer Language Translations
One of the most pressing problems facing Cambodia’s higher education sector today is the lack of academic texts available in the Khmer language. Addressing this lack becomes even more imperative as many universities, both public and private, offer not only Bachelor’s degrees but also Master’s and Ph.D. degrees.
Almost all of the books used in these graduate programs are in English, and students often do not master the English language sufficiently well to comprehend higher-level academic readings. Thus far, book translations have focused mainly on technical fields. In 2004, the Center for Khmer Study began to address this need by identifying key texts to translate into the Khmer Language.
These books are available to buy at the Center’s offices, and local bookstores in Cambodia. All proceeds will be used to support the the CKS publishing and translation program. An added shipping cost is added to all online book or journal purchases.
