Has anyone been regularly using Google Translate for Khmer?

Have questions or resources regarding Khmer Culture? This forum is all about the Kingdom of Cambodia's culture. Khmer language, Cambodian weddings, French influence, Cambodian architecture, Cambodian politics, Khmer customs, etc? This is the place. Living in Cambodia can cause you to experience a whole new level of culture shock, so feel free to talk about all things related to the Khmer people, and their traditions. And if you want something in Khmer script translated into English, you will probably find what you need.

What do you use it for that makes you think it is almost worthless? Translating bar girls Facebook posts?
No, I can do that myself just fine. :whip:

EXAMPLE:

Men Saroeurn 38, is the youngest son to launch his elderly grandmother in a house near Grandma's house, described said his mother named Oum 83 years old live in the village commune above story, which led to his mother burn and aim Such suicide is from his anger and grandson who is a child, he took a cow sperm head that thinks it has to rent to others without asking him. Grandma is very angry. Before the scene about 3 pm to his mother used to buy gasoline, 5 liter shareholders, but no one ever imagined shoulder that he bought gasoline and burn and burn himself.

Cow sperm?? LoL!!! :ROFL2: I can only speak for myself when I say I have NEVER rented a cow head sperm, and if I did, I would be sure to ask my grandma for permission first, as to not anger my grandma like the dude in the story did. She has every right to be angry, IMO.

WTF happened here?

Again, that's just one thats right in front of me right now, but some are outright hilarious!! I almost feel like some tech dude at Google is just typing random shit just to mess with me sometime. I'll post the next good one I see...

So, like, you shouldn't judge then, dude, until you walk a mile in THEIR shoes... some people can't afford to BUY cow head sperm and some even have to rent it on a share basis with their NEIGHBOURS...

:D

It's really improving though! Paragraphs are still interesting but phrases and words are getting much better.

Lol the poor oranges!

Khmer-to-English Google translate outcomes could become funnier than iPhone autocorrect and on par with Chinese mispronunciation.

When I use it I always pretend I'm having a conversation with a person on LSD... seems to work well for translating what was said to approach it the same way.

Has anyone worked out how to get Google Translate to show alternate translations on the mobile version?
