Malay translation services

Malay is an official language in several different states – including the burgeoning economies of Malaysia and Indonesia. This means that communicating in Malay opens up several new and exciting markets for your company. But Malaysian, Indonesian and many other dialects of Malay are distinct languages, with different vocabularies, orthographies and pronunciations…

Asian Absolute’s professional Malay translation and interpreting services let you and your UK company do business like a native speaker anywhere Malay is used. With our help, you’ll naturally work with local cultural preferences and ways of doing business in mind. Making sure that, whether you’re meeting local partners for the first time or designing the most convincing Malay marketing materials, you’re doing so from a position of confidence and authority.

And with Indonesia being the fourth most-populous nation in the world, Malaysia being the third largest economy in South-East Asia – not to mention the huge number of other speakers of various Malay dialects up and down the Malacca Straits – that’s some important markets you could be trading in.

Guinness World Records

Facts about the Malay language – confusion over “bahasa” translation services

The word for “language” in Malay is “bahasa“. Thus:

  1. Malaysian– is properly called bahasa Malaysia, “Malaysian language”
  2. Indonesian – is properly called bahasa Indonesia, “Indonesian language”

At Asian Absolute, we often find that we’re asked for  “bahasa” translation services. Generally in these cases, we find that it is Indonesian or Malaysian language capability that our clients are looking. But we’ll always be happy to advise you about which dialect of Malay will be most suitable when you tell us which market or area you are targeting.
