Cambodian Pronunciation Help with names

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.

Cambodian Pronunciation Help with names

Post by jordanmsu » Sun Mar 22, 2020 10:55 am

Hello!

I'm a Dialect Coach in NYC helping a narrator out on an audiobook, and wanted to honor the proper Cambodian pronunciation of some names.
Would it be possible to put me in touch with someone who could help?
Thank you!

If you're in NYC, it would probably be easier to reach in your own 'hood.
Have you tried NEW YORK CITY CAMBODIAN AMERICAN ASSOCIATION

Heard back from a Mean Mak willing to help, but haven't heard back from him since.
Do you know anyone who could help over the phone? It should be a quick call no more than a few minutes

Dude does your production company or client know you cant find a Khmer speaker in NYC becasue you dont know how to use Google?

Theres lots of them in NYC, there is this thing called the UN who attracts loads of qualified translators around the city
