    MAJOR INDONESIAN LANGUAGE PAIRS WE SUPPORT

    GTE Localize supports numerous Indonesian language pairs. Some of the most common language pairs that we support are as follows. If you require an exhaustive list, please contact our team.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU CONSIDER WHEN TRANSLATING YOUR CONTENT INTO INDONESIAN?

    • Smartphones in Indonesia are popular. Indonesia has become one of Asia’s foremost mobile-first nations. The smartphone penetration rate in Indonesia in 2020 is over 70%.
    • Colours are intertwined with traditions, customs, and beliefs in Indonesia. As the world’s most culturally and ethnically diverse countries, colours have a unique interpretation for different groups of people. However, they still share some common understanding of colours. For example, red and white, the colours of the Indonesian flag, are considered sacred colours. The colours of red and white stand for courageous and spiritual life, or pure.
    • You may consider changing your default payment methods to cash to match Indonesian people’s behaviour.
    • There are two main tones in the Indonesian personal pronouns – Formal and Informal. The use of the pronouns depends on the social rank and the relationship between speakers and addressees.
    • The Indonesian language has some unique rules when writing numbers. For example, numbers that can be represented by one or two words are written in letters unless they are used in sequence as in detail.
    • The conjunction is misused by many Indonesian people.
    • Indonesian people use the metric system of measurement (kilogram, meter, etc.)
    • The date format is date-month-year.
    • There are three time zones in Indonesia (Western, Central, and Eastern Indonesian Time). In spoken Indonesian, the 12-hour format is preferred to use and adding the time indicator after it. The 24-hour time format is likely to be used in written texts.
    • The address format is the street name and house number, subdistrict, city, district, province, and postal code.

    INDONESIAN TRANSLATION SERVICES Q&A

    When we calculate the cost of an Indonesian translation project, we consider a variety of factors. Three major factors that have a direct impact on the rate are listed below:

    • Project Size: Typically, we prepare a quote based on the number of words or characters in your source content.
    • Service Levels: We offer three types of Indonesian translation services: translation only, translation and editing, and translation, editing, and proofreading. The more steps your project necessitates, the higher the rate.
    • Content Complexity: The rate is affected by the complexity of the content. Documents requiring a high level of expertise are charged higher rates than documents requiring a low level of expertise.

    Our translation rate for Indonesian translation services starts at $0.06/word. For a free quotation, please contact our team.

    The turnaround time of an Indonesian translation project, like the rate, is influenced by a number of factors, including the size of the project, the type of services, the complexity of content, and other special requirements. Indonesian translators at GTE Localize can handle 2,000 words per day on average. If your project needs translating urgently, we can assign it to additional translators, increasing our daily capacity to 8,000 words per business day.

    For a more accurate delivery time, please contact our team.

    You can make use of the following resources to evaluate the quality of our Indonesian translation services:

    • Ask to browse through the Indonesian translation projects we’ve completed over the years.
    • See a list of Indonesian clients with whom we’ve collaborated.
    • Request to see the blind resumes of our Indonesian translators.
    • Request a free test (up to 300 words) to assess our suitability for your projects.

    ABOUT THE INDONESIAN LANGUAGE

    • Indonesian, or Bahasa Indonesia, is the national and official language across all of Indonesia, which has one of the world’s largest populations of nearly 240 million people and is also the world’s most populous Muslim-majority country.
    • Most Indonesian citizens speak Indonesian fluently, either as their first or second language, thus making it one of the most widely used languages in the world.
    • The Indonesian vocabulary is filled with words borrowed from a number of languages including Sanskrit, Chinese, Dutch, Portuguese, Arabic, Persian, and many others.

     

    LINGUISTIC FEATURES

    • Standard Indonesian is made up of the Latin alphabet. It is usually phonetically consistent. Indonesian has a lot in common with Malay dialects, as it is technically a dialect of Malay.
    • Generally, punctuation conventions in Indonesian are identical to those of English, except for the case of a series of adjectives, which are normally punctuated with commas in English but not in Indonesian.
    • In written and spoken Indonesian, the order of words is constantly moved around in order to place a certain emphasis on certain words. For example:
      “The weather was warm yesterday” – “Cuacanya hangat kemarin”
      “Yesterday the weather was warm” – “Kemarin cuacanya hangat”
    • The emphasis would be on “yesterday” in the former sentence and “warm weather” in the latter.
