TYPO3 is ready for Khmer language
In Cambodia, TYPO3 seems like a very new Content Management System compared to Drupal, Joomla and Wordpress, but it is not a new CMS at all. TYPO3 was released in the early 1998 created by Kasper Skårhøj in 1997 when the requirements for a CMS was identified and TYPO3 is getting more advanced and has become the Enterprise Content Management System most used by professional web developers in the world.
We call TYPO3 enterprise Content Management System because it is a complex software with many different and powerful functions and interfaces for communication with other software, a high amount of investment for licence and customization and also content editing is fast and easy. A key bonus is that it is an Open Source system.
TYPO3 is a feature rich CMS that is also highly customizable. It has allowed developers to quickly create their own extensions and share them through a central repository that is available to the community. Over 4000 extensions are freely available today, which allows users to install a shop, news system, calendar, gallery, search engine, login box, newsletter etc. by just a click on a button.
In Cambodia you may not have heard much about TYPO3, but Web Essentials, a company based in Phnom Penh, specialises in providing high-quality web development services around the world is using this Content Management System TYPO3 for developing websites for their clients. In the last few months, Web Essentials set up a team and start translating TYPO3 into Khmer language, that started from June 20, 2010 and has finished the translation of Static Info Tables extension and TYPO3 core locally on November 5, 2010.
The translation is for Khmer people to start using TYPO3 in their own language and also to let Cambodian know about the system and to help Cambodian developers do their work faster and easier.
The news from TYPO3 core team member, the Khmer language key will be added into a new version of TYPO3 4.5.0 Beta1 which will be released in this week and submitted to the translation server later on.
