Foreigner creates translation app to talk to Cambodians but they just want to talk about his cock

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Foreigner creates translation app to talk to Cambodians but they just want to talk about his cock

Post by fax »

I am a foreigner who lives in Cambodia and can speak Khmer because I spent 1200 hours of free work on making a translator to help Khmer people. And some Khmer instead of being thankful groundlessly and abusively suspect me from being fake​ despite me having sent them 5 real pictures. And when they realize it they don't apologize and just ask how big my cock is. I feel an extremely strong contempt towards such people.

Perhaps if he stopped using the name "Tripod Rod" people would take him more seriously.

Informal words and slang would be a good application of educational effort. I would love to buy a resource (book, app) similar to “Outrageous Thai: Slang, Curses and Epithets“ but for Khmer with latin transcription by someone who has lived here long enough.
1200 hours of free work, really? For sure the coding part should have taken two orders of magnitude less than that.

Not at all.. decent translation solution is years of work for a team of developers (im not saying that his solution is decent)
His web app works worse then google translate though and missing the best features such as audio listening.. so not actually helpful to anyone besides himself.

you can try yourself:

He picked up Khmer as fast as I've seen. It's a good way to learn a language I guess, by more or less writing a dictionary.

I used to use the site quite regularly and found it far better than Google translate for technical work-related translation, on most occasions.
