Pidgin uses gettext to handle translations; translating Pidgin requires that you
edit a .po file.  Since we don't already have a Khmer translation, you'll need
to work from the template, pidgin.pot.  You can download the pidgin.pot file
from the bottom of the page at and translate
with your favorite text editor or any translation-specific tool, and somewhere
during this process rename it to XX.po (substituting the language code for XX).

Reading may be useful, too.
