OCR pdf into text Khmer

Quote from: About
Khmer OCR is an Optical Character Recognition system for Khmer font which is one research project of Research and Development Center at National Institute of Posts, Telecoms, and ICT (NIPTICT). OCR is an important software tool for Khmer language in collection and compilation legacy documents most of which had been printed without or lost their digital files, and some were hand written documents. OCR can be used to convert such that documents into computer digital files as archived documents for any purpose in the future.
Many different Khmer fonts have been using everyday, we have developed Khmer OCR and can recognized several fonts such as:
Khmer Angulileka
Khmer S1 or Limon S1
Khmer M1 or Limon R1
Khmer Kep
Khmer OS Battambang
Khmer OS Siemreap


We used open source Tesseract OCR Engine for training. ( ). We applied our rule based cropping method for Khmer language

Related Work

"Khmer OCR " is the first published web-based application that developed by Mr. Danh Hong, who has been working hard on Khmer language in computer field such as developed Khmer unicode fonts. Further more, without his guideline, our research team would not had started this project either.

Alternative to the use of google for Dhamma translations Khmer. Since the Royal Government of Cambodia and it's ministeries are by national edict devoted to the tipple Gems, it can be assumed that it can be taken in trust that the giver rejoices by making use of it for the Sangha for Dhamma purposes:

(of course it's would be possible good if clear expressed, requested, to erase all doubts and dangers of faults and remorse)

Atma hat sich erlaubt eine Anfrage und Einladung an das Team des Online Dictionaries auf zu senden:

Quote from: Absende Antwort im Kontaktformular, 18.05.2015
Thank you for your suggestion/comments.

Subject: Khmer Dictionary: Request and invitation

Valued Khmer-Dictionary team,
first Atma (me) would like to congratulate you to this great website and support. Sadhu!

Currently there is a lay mans project to develop a "Vitual Vihara" (Buddhist monastery) and some Cambodian voluntary students of German language would like to support the translation of the language files into Khmer language so that it is more accessible for Cambodian people. Atma, who is currently helping to develop and give advices on, would therefore kindly ask for the use of your web site as translation tool and furthermore invite you to join this work and other translation into Khmer language. As internet and computer are a fast growing matter in Cambodia but the used language on net has not really found proper development, its maybe also a interesting topic for your works here. Maybe worthy a sub-directory.

Atma sees forward to read your reply and urges you not to feel pressured by the request and invitation while pardon in advanced for the uninvited request via your contact page.

Quote from: Paul Hemetsberger

Mein derzeitiges Hauptprojekt stellt den Versuch dar, ein Online-Wörterbuch für Deutsch/Englisch-Übersetzungen unter Mithilfe von Benutzern aus der ganzen Welt aufzubauen und zu verbessern. Der Grundgedanke ist dabei ähnlich der Wikipedia , von der Umsetzung her gibt es naturgemäß Unterschiede. Ich lade jeden Besucher meiner Seiten ein, das System unter auszuprobieren und freue mich über konstruktive Rückmeldungen. Übrigens:
Mittlerweile ist bereits umfangreicher als LEO !

Neben der Kontrolle von Übersetzungen und anderen administrativen Tätigkeiten wie etwa Benutzerbetreuung und Serverwartung entwickle ich derzeit das Konzept basierend auf Benutzerfeedback weiter, um Wörterbuch , Vokabeltrainer und Übersetzungsforum in Zukunft auf beliebige Sprachkombinationen ausdehnen zu können.

What is all about?

Wörterbücher zum herunterladen und offline arbeiten:

Freelang German-English dictionary



Notepad++ is a free  source code editor and Notepad replacement that supports several languages. Running in the MS Windows environment, its use is governed by GPL License.

Christian Simon hat freundlicherweise seine kompakte Wörterbuch-Software zum offline lesen und arbeiten der Daten für gegeben. Siehe: Offline Wörterbuch software - "elcombri"

Da Programm läßt sich leicht installieren. Nach der Installation müssen Sie das Datenfile (Wortliste von, zur Verfügung gestellt von Paul Hemetsberger) von seiner Webseite laden (Achtung! nur das file elcombri verwenden, die uft-8 files funktionieren nicht) und im Programm als Wörterbuch laden.

Habe das Programm gerade heruntergeladen und installiert und funktioniert alles einwandfrei und simpel. Hier auch noch einmal die Gabe mit den Angaben der Downloadlinks:

Fonts | Khmer Fonts | Cambodian Fonts | Khmer Unicode

As computer and internet industry gain influence and market in Cambodia, several types of Khmer fonts have been developed as well, such as Khek font, Limon font, Zero-Space font, and many others just to name a few. Most of them were not developed by using Unicode or meet the guideline of the Unicode Standards .
 However, all of these fonts have been widely utilized with word
processing, such as Word in Microsoft Office. Because many of these fonts were neither developed using Unicode Standards nor adopted by makers of World Wide Web (WWW) browsers, many Khmer fonts were not readable without special library drivers.

Khmer Unicode

Khmer Unicode For Window Vista:
  Microsoft Window Vista (32bit and 64 bit) comes with Khmer Unicode built-in, but required you to set it up in order to read Web page using Khmer Unicode or to write in Khmer Unicode properly. The keyboard layout is a little bit different from keyboard layout developed by NIDA. Example, to type, kra-bey (in khmer), firstly type "K", then press "Space" to reserve space for Jerng (or Chherng) and press "R". To space between character, hold "Shift" and press "Space".
Now, you should have kra. Download Khmer OS fonts from the right side and you will enjoy and have fun with all the fonts style and types.
Khmer  Software Initiative (KhmerOS), National  Information Communications Technology Development Authority (NIDA), and Open  Institute joined to create a project for developing OpenSource software  that can accommodate Khmer Unicode-based fonts. Khmer Unicode is a part of  their project, but it has not yet widely utilized or built-in as part internet  browsers or software applications. It is, however, gradually becoming popular  among users/developers in Cambodia.  Khmer Unicode has been developed to use in platforms such as:

  • OpenOffice (Word Processing),
  • OpenSUSE (Linux based Operation System),
  • Khmer Email Application (Thunderbird-based email application),
  • Mekhala (FireFox-based Internet Browser)

Khmer Unicode For Window XP:

For MS Window XP, Khmer Unicode Keyboard (NIDA 1.0) driver is required. KhmerUnicode2.0.0.exe (developed by KhmerOS and NIDA) has both Khmer Unicode software and Khmer Unicode Keyboard (NIDA 1.0). Please follow the below instruction to download and install it. If you install the Khmer Unicode in your computer system correctly, you should be able at least to view the web site in Khmer via Mozilla FireFox, MS IE, Opera, and Safari. After installing it and you would like to see if you can read/view the page in Khmer Unicode, open your FireFox browser, and go to all these website , Radio Free Asia ( ), (only in FireFox), . To type in khmer, you are recommended to read the Instruction, "Documents How to Write " and follow the Keyboard Layout .

If your MS Window XP has Service Pack 2 installed, you can view the pages of Radio Free Asia ( ) in Khmer via Internet Exploer 6.0 or higher. In this case, RFA utilizes WEFT to have the pages viewed in Khmer even without Khmer Unicode installed.

Das ist ein freies Office-Paket (fast das gleiche wie OpenOffice), mit dem man auch MS-Word-Dokumente und so bearbeiten kann. Wenn man damit arbeitet, ist es aber vernünftiger, Dinge im "hauseigenen" .odt-Format (open document trallala) zu speichern. - Wie die .doc- und .docx-Formate funktionieren, das wird ja nicht von MS öffentlich gemacht, und das haben die dann natürlich durch probieren selbst ausgetüftelt. Zumindest vorm Speichern im docx-Format wird daher ausdrücklich gewarnt, auch wenn alles größtenteils ziemlich reibungslos zu funktionieren scheint. Das .doc-Format scheint aber wohl gut durchschaut und gefahrlos nutzbar zu sein.

Quote from: Paul Hemetsberger

Mein derzeitiges Hauptprojekt stellt den Versuch dar, ein Online-Wörterbuch für Deutsch/Englisch-Übersetzungen unter Mithilfe von Benutzern aus der ganzen Welt aufzubauen und zu verbessern. Der Grundgedanke ist dabei ähnlich der Wikipedia , von der Umsetzung her gibt es naturgemäß Unterschiede. Ich lade jeden Besucher meiner Seiten ein, das System unter auszuprobieren und freue mich über konstruktive Rückmeldungen. Übrigens:
Mittlerweile ist bereits umfangreicher als LEO !

Neben der Kontrolle von Übersetzungen und anderen administrativen Tätigkeiten wie etwa Benutzerbetreuung und Serverwartung entwickle ich derzeit das Konzept basierend auf Benutzerfeedback weiter, um Wörterbuch , Vokabeltrainer und Übersetzungsforum in Zukunft auf beliebige Sprachkombinationen ausdehnen zu können.

What is all about?
