    I know there’s a Khmer/English dictionary, but a medical dictionary? I don’t even know if they even sell those, might have to special order than from Cambodia, if they even have them, but they might…

    There are good Khmer-English Medical Dictionaries out there and I think they’re such an important tool, especially in the health/mental health fields. It’s challenging in those fields because Khmer helping professionals and services providers can find themselves stuck between cultural nuisances and getting lost in translation is more common that you may think.

    I tried looking some up on Amazon.

    English-Khmer Medical Dictionary (Work Papers O North Dakota, Vol Xx/Supplement, No 2) (Paperback)

    The publication was back in 1976, maybe there are more updated editions out there.

    I don’t think Cambodia has, b/c most medical schools use French. But hey it might. If so, perhaps I’ll get responses from KCers in Cambodia.

    Yeah, I was thinking the same too because back in the days, English wasn’t the official languge, French was and so there are French-Khmer dictionaries, but it’s hard to find an English-Khmer Medical Dictionary.

    What words are you looking to translate? Maybe I can help…I do know some medical terms in Khmer.
