Malay is also the official language of Indonesia, as Indonesian is a standardized form of Malay.

Additionally, high-quality, consistent localization solutions for the Malay language requires advanced AI translation technology combined with native, in-country linguists for a quick turnaround time.
The Diversity of the Malayan World
Malay is a member of the Austronesian family and uses the Latin script, also referred to as Rumi. There are two main divisions for dialects of Malay: northern, which is spoken in Brunei, Malaysia, and Singapore as well as southern, which is spoken in Indonesia. Within these two large divisions are further subdivisions of dialects and accents of Malay. Further, there is also formal and informal registers of Malay. Formal Malay is used in school and education, government, as well as public writing, while informal or colloquial Malay is used in everyday speech. Informal Malay is distinct from formal, as it borrows many words from other languages.
With so many different cultural nuances that vary across regions, the importance of understanding local communities is critical for ensuring success in whatever product or service is entering the market. Whether you are seeking Malay to English translations or English to Malay translations, it is essential to ensure the cultural appropriateness and local sophistication of every project entering or expanding from Malaysia’s market.
