Google today announced that it has gained the support to its 66th language in the line-up for its Google Translate service: the Cambodia’s Khmer. With around 16 million native speakers of Khmer, the new language will certainly give an edge at par.
The company launched Khmer with useful features, including virtual keyboard (to give flexibility to you while typing the language) and ability to read Khmer text phonetically for users who don’t read Khmer alphabet.
