and throughout Bristol our linguists can get you heard in any language of your choice. While we do not offer a walk-in service in Bristol , we are only one phone call away from discussing your language requirements. Our Khmer linguists are based all around the world so we can connect you remotely, or for situations where you need an on-site Khmer linguist, we can quickly check our network of local professionals to see who is the closest to you.
Completed by qualified Khmer translators
Getting married? Studying abroad? Do you have legal documents you must have translated? Some authorities demand that you supply certified translations of your official documents. This means that even if you are bilingual, the relevant authority is unlikely to accept your own translation. They will be looking for a translation independently carried out and by an appropriately qualified Khmer linguist.
We offer 3 main types of certification in Bristol
It is important that you check with the appropriate authority which type of certification they will accept.
The first type of certification comes in the form of a letter printed on Knockhundred’s letterhead certifying that, as a professional translation company, Knockhundred has undertaken the translation. Each page of the translation itself is also stamped. This type of certification is generally supplied in digital format. By special arrangement, we can also provide the certification in hard copy format by post.
Notarised, sworn or legalised translation
The second type of certification is where the translation is stamped and signed by a Notary Public. A notarised translation is also sometimes referred to as a “sworn” translation, but this phrase isn’t often used in the UK. It can also be called a legalised translation.
A Notary Public is an officer of the law empowered to attest or confirm certain oaths, statutory declarations and documents under his seal.
Working from your documents, our qualified linguists will provide an accurate translation, carefully checking the details. Once certified by us, a Notary Public will add the official seal.
You do not need to be located near our offices as the entire process is conducted digitally and by post.
British Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) legalisation of translated documents
Some authorities insist on this extra step. Once notarised by a Notary Public and confirmed as true translations, the translations and any associated original documents are further verified and stamped by the FCO.

How is the cost for certified Khmer translations calculated?

- The cost depends on the level of certification: digital, notarisation or FCO legalisation.
While you’re here… some quite interesting facts about the Khmer language.
Khmer or Cambodian, or more formally is the language of the Khmer people and the official language of Cambodia. With approximately 16 million speakers, it is the second most widely spoken Austroasiatic language (after Vietnamese). Khmer has been influenced considerably by Sanskrit and Pali, especially in the royal and religious registers, through Hinduism and Buddhism. The more colloquial registers have influenced, and have been influenced by, Thai, Lao, Vietnamese, and Cham, all of which, due to geographical proximity and long-term cultural contact, form a sprachbund in peninsular Southeast Asia. The vast majority of Khmer speakers speak Central Khmer, the dialect of the central plain where the Khmer are most heavily concentrated. Within Cambodia, regional accents exist in remote areas but these are regarded as varieties of Central Khmer. Two exceptions are the speech of the capital, Phnom Penh, and that of the Khmer Khe in Stung Treng province, both of which differ sufficiently enough from Central Khmer to be considered separate dialects of Khmer. Outside of Cambodia, three distinct dialects are spoken by ethnic Khmers native to areas that were historically part of the Khmer Empire. The Northern Khmer dialect is spoken by over a million Khmers in the southern regions of Northeast Thailand and is treated by some linguists as a separate language. Khmer Krom, or Southern Khmer, is the first language of the Khmer of Vietnam while the Khmer living in the remote Cardamom mountains speak a very conservative dialect that still displays features of the Middle Khmer language.
Where is Khmer most widely spoken?Cambodia and ASEAN. Khmer is also a recognised minority language in Thailand and Vietnam.
