Created in 1945, Bahasa Indonesian is a relatively new language. Its antecedent, Malay, and its different dialects are spoken in the Indonesian archipelago. At the time of Indonesia’s creation, a need was felt to create a language that was more widely understood across the archipelago, and hence came about Bahasa Indonesian.
It is spoken by million people in Indonesia, Brunei, and Singapore. The country has a growing economy. In particular, e-commerce is growing in a big way.
Indonesians are very quick in adapting to the Internet. The Indonesian Facebook community was one of the most active?? ones. They also like to navigate the world wide web in their own language. Hence, for online success in Indonesia, translation and localization is very critical.
A client came to us with a requirement of English to Bahasa Indonesian translation. There were certain challenges involved in the project, which we were able to resolve with careful planning and execution.
