Are you setting the wine session to use the Khmer language when starting 
it, even if your computer's language is already set so?

If it is Unicode, Wine should support it.

The start line should be something like:

LC_LANG = <Unicode UTF line for Khmer> wine theword.exe <or the 
executable for The Word>
