Hi Juergen,

The translation of OpenOffice to Khmer is done since 2004 by a group of 
professional localizers hired by the Open Institute (a local Cambodian 
NGO). Sokhem has been managing this group since 2005.

The NGO works with the Cambodian government on the migration of 
OpenOffice, and mostly with the Ministry of Education, which has made 
OpenOffice in Khmer compulsory in Education (MS is not allowed in schools).

We have always worked directly using .SDF files, not using Pootle, 
mostly because we were using XLIFF files instead of PO to localize, as 
it is much more efficient. We developed our own XLIFF editor (WordForge).

Having Khmer included in the list and having a 3.4.1 installer would be 
great for us, as the gap since 3.3 has already been to long. The 
translation in Pootle will be completed within this week.
