Editorial review


Rory Shaffer Senior editor

There are many languages that use a different writing system than the Latin one and therefore require you to install other fonts and use other text encodings than the usual Unicode ones. Khmer is one of these languages. That’s the main reason why the Khmer Converter application has been developed.

Khmer Converter lets you convert the encoding and the font of entire documents.
It supports two-ways conversions, both from Unicode to legacy (Khmer) fonts and encoding, as well as from legacy to Unicode. It can load and convert files of multiple types: ODT (Open Office documents), TXT (plain text files) and even HTM/HTML. Unfortunately, it can’t convert MS Word documents, which is quite a big disappointment to me.

I personally like that it supports a lot of legacy font types (such as ABC, ABC-zwsp, FK, Baidok, Khek, Limon, Truth, Kaohkong and RaksmeiKampuchea) and that it comes with a simple and intuitive interface. Except for the fact that it can’t load and convert MS Word documents, there’s nothing I dislike about it.
