Khmer Software Initiative (KhmerOS) is a project of the Open Institute to help the economic development of Cambodia by providing computer tools in Khmer (Cambodian) language that can be used by everybody.
It translates to Khmer Free and Open Source applications (such as word processing, spreadsheets, presentation tools, e-mail, Internet, graphic manipulation, etc.) for their use by private users and in government offices. It also produces large amounts of documentation in Khmer.
KhmerOS is the base for the Open Schools Program, a joint venture with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport that has taken the applications translated and localized by KhmerOS to all schools of Cambodia that have computers, as well as to all teacher training centers, making them mandatory (because they are the only software in Khmer).
KhmerOS also provides localization and training services to other projects of the Open Institute, such as the Open Learning Program and the Women's Program.
Cambodia is a country in which language will not be a barrier to access technology, development, or learning.
To ensure that local language technology is available to as many people as possible, and that it is used for cultural, educational and economic growth.
