Indonesian to English Translation Services


The Indonesian language, locally known as Bahasa Indonesia, is widely spoken in Indonesia, considering the wide language diversity of this society. In fact, Indonesian is spoken by 94% of the population, but what is interesting is that its native to only 20% of the population. Indonesian is spoken in almost all official schooling and virtually all national media and other forms of communication. The constitution of East Timor recognizes Indonesian as one of the two working languages (the other is English).

Just in case you did not know, Bahasa Indonesia means “Language of Indonesia,”; so, for those English speakers who are accustomed to calling Indonesian “Bahasa,” you’re simply saying “language.” It’s worse if you say, “Bahasa language.”
