Bahasa Malayu – Bahasa Malaysia: Malay translation service
We translate over 80 language combinations including Malay to English and English to Malay. In fact, English to Malay translations are among our top 14 requested translation services. Our Malay translation service is engaged by Government agencies, businesses and individuals across Australia and worldwide.
Bahasa Malaysia or “language of Malaysia” is considered as an official language of Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei. According to the Department of Statistics Malaysia, Malaysia's population was 27.7 million as of September 2008.
There is a significant population of Malay speakers residing in Australia. The Australian Bureau of Statistics publication ‘Migration, Australia, 2007-08' showed 120,053 Malaysian-born people lived in Australia, an increase of 11.6 per cent from the 2006 census.
We have at your disposal a team of highly qualified and experienced Malay translators. We offer a comprehensive Malay translation service covering a variety of specialist fields including scientific, technical, legal, commercial/promotional, etc.
Our Malay translators are located both in Australia and overseas. We assign projects to Malay translators according to key factors such as translator accreditation, area of expertise and the translator’s country of residence, which is particularly important for commercial/promotional translations. We ensure that a Malay translation will read as well as, or even better than, the source document by carefully assigning the most appropriate translator for the project; fluency in the latest cultural and business terminology for your target audience is essential. Our Malay translators hold current membership of organizations associations such as AUSIT. For translations requiring certification within Australia, we utilize translators credentialed by NAATI. Furthermore, all of our Malay translations undergo proofreading to ensure accuracy.
Malay to English and English to Malay typesetting considerations
When translating from one language to another, the amount of text will either increase or decrease. This expansion and contraction will vary depending upon subject matter. English to Malay translation often results in a 20% increase in text. Accordingly, a Malay to English translation will decrease the amount of text by approximately 15%. This is of course a general rule, but should be factored in when preparing copy that is to be typeset following translation. There are no other significant typesetting considerations to be made when preparing copy for translation from Malay to English or English to Malay.
