The translation of The Little Prince in Khmer!

2, Mar, 2023

Among the 500 existing translations of The Little Prince, discover the one in Khmer, the national language of Cambodia, published by the SIPAR association!

In 2002, The association published The Little Prince in Khmer at the request of Christophe Macquet, then professor of translation at the Royal University of Phnom Penh. It was hand-picked students from the University who took on the complex task of translating the book into Khmer.

Two mobile libraries, decorated in the colors of the Little Prince, roam the suburbs of Phnom Penh and the province of Angkor to share the values and the humanist thought of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, aviator, writer, draftsman, great reporter and inventor, underprivileged Cambodian children!

“This is how the Little Prince became a sower of books in Cambodia,” Bernadette Chaventon likes to say.
