Should Cambodia create an official system to transcribe Khmer characters into Latin script (Romanization) just like Romaji for Japanese, Ping Yin for Chinese, Romaja for Korean etc. so every Cambodian will transcribe it the same way when they refer to same Khmer word. Everyday, we see different ways of transcription from one to another for the same word which is most of the time confusing or time consuming to understand.Untitled-1

The system will be very useful where Khmer writing is not available especially when they are communicating on the device which doesn’t support Khmer fonts.
