Translations

The Documentation Center of Cambodia translates books from English into Khmer (Edited by Youk Chhang); we do not translate from Khmer into other languages. Please also note that DC-Cam does not fund the translation or publication of books. The authors are responsible for this, or for locating funding for both purposes.
