A screenshot of the Orkida English-Khmer Dictionary on Mac

Orkida English Khmer Dictionary has been used by most (if not all) Cambodian computer users for years since its inception. We’ve become loyal to it even we have many new replacements. It is simple, lightweight, and easy to install. However, as life keeps moving, we sometimes end up moving away from it unintentionally. In this article, I will be focusing on Mac users. As you move out of the Windows PCs, you miss many or some of your favorite Windows apps. Well, they maybe available also on Mac, for example Photoshop, InDesign etc. However, many are not available for Mac users. Although they have alternatives for Mac, they are sometimes not as good as expected.

Some are not available now, but we can hope they (developers) will make one for Mac OS one day. Still, there are applications that you will never expect they are made for Mac. Just like this old dictionary, I believe it will never be made available for Mac so I did a little workaround to have it run on my Mac without even the need to install Windows on neither Parallel Desktop nor VM Ware.

Please note that not all Windows applications can be done this way.  I will share with you guys soon should you wish to learn how to make it possible.
