title machine in CEO news break down

Post by bolueeleh » Mon Apr 04, 2016 8:24 pm

as of 2100 GMT it has been noticed that the title machine of the cambodian expats online forum has broken down and churning out nonsensical but true titles to confuse its forum users, churning out titles like:

man pays money, dies frothing in the mouth.

government officials takes bribes, strips down in public and flocks themselves.

hostess bar free beer for all, customers ran away screaming.

if anybody has the information to the whereabouts of the man operating the title machine, please contact this number:

The bizarre, Khmenglish thread titles do make you want to click on them though. :thumb:

I liked "Title: Borrow sister in law's toilet to finish life mysteriously ".

"Today! The forbidden poster still announced though the sea has become normal."

What is nonsensical about that?

Come on. We've all been there before. I still have restraining orders in 7 States.

While we appreciate KiwiInCambodia's help, he's still a bit rough around the edges.

Seriously though, someone is trying to help CEO get Khmer news translated into English for everybody, which might have a fun learning curve in store for us all, LoL.

And while I agree that some of the recent titles are quite amusing, they are doing their best to help us out when they can, and after a bit of trial and error it will likely be a billion times better than Google Translate cut and pastes you find all over the web.

Time will tell, and by all means, if any members see a catchy news article in Khmer and can translate it, take a whack at it, or even PM it to us and we'll see what we can do.

Ok, I gotta make some Skype calls.

i read that article in Khmer. I am impressed how CEOCambodiaNews did the translation. The CEOCambodiaNews literately translated it the way it is written in Khmer. It is a bit funny, but very very readable.

:thumb: Well done.

its going alright, im learning a lot, ive been doing a load of practicing trying to get all the new words into my everyday vocabulary, feels like its going slow but i think im gradually speaking more than i realise, ive already learnt a lot of the words its just having the confidence to speak,
actually starting taking the time to learn how to read khmer now i have a greater understanding of the language and pronunciation of words, just from glancing over it all this morning i can already memorise quite a few constanants and vowels, and also elements that i wasnt even aware of before, compared to when i first made an attempt to read it made a lot more sense this time, while i know ill never be able to read to the extent of me singing in karaoke being able to read khmer would be handy :lol:
