WHAT SHOULD YOU CONSIDER WHEN LOCALIZING 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 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.

FAQs For INDONESIAN TRANSLATION SERVICES

As an Indonesian translation company, we provide a wide range of translation services from and into the Indonesian language. Some popular Indonesian language pairs we work with are English to Indonesian, Indonesian to English, Chinese to Indonesian, Korean to Indonesian, Japanese to Indonesian, Vietnamese to Indonesian, Spanish to Indonesian, etc.

To have the exact price of a Indonesian translation project, we take many factors into consideration:

  • Project volume: In most cases, we give the quotation per word or characters. The number of words/characters is the most precise indication for the effort our linguists put into the project.
  • Service required: Some Indonesian translation projects only require Translation Only (TO), others need both Translation and Editing (TE), or Translation + Editing + Proofreading (TEP). The more steps a project need, the higher the rate is.
  • Industry expertise: The complexity of the required domain also affects the price of the project. General topics are charged less than high-expertise content.

Our competitive rate for a Indonesian translation project starts from $0.06/word. Please contact our team for a quotation for your project.

It depends on the volume, content types, required services, and other project-specific factors. In general, our translator metric is averagely 2,000 words per business day for Indonesian translation projects. In some cases, we assign a translation task for multiple translators to handle, with the capacity of 4,000-8,000 words per day (depending on the language pairs). For example, if you have a 10,000-word-Indonesian-to-English-project, you can expect to receive the translation in about 2 business days.

FACTS ABOUT INDONESIAN LANGUAGELess Facts

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 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.
