Jinyu’s Chinese-Indonesian Translation Insights

1. Facts about Indonesian/Malay and Their Chinese Translations

Indonesian and Malay are the official languages of Indonesia and Malaysia, respectively. However, due to complicated historical and cultural reasons, these two languages are much alike. Here we have summarized a list of facts about these languages and their Chinese translations:

  • Almost 80% of Indonesian and Malay words are the same. Indonesian was standardized from Malay and was declared in 1945 when Indonesia became independent. For this reason, users of these two languages can communicate.
  • Most of the differences lie in pronunciation. As Malay borrows many words from English while Indonesian borrows from Dutch, the pronunciation of these two languages is slightly different. However, there are still some written distinctions for them, such as “iya” and “iye”.
  • At least three different cultures influence the Indonesian language. Looking at the colonial history of Indonesia, we can find that this language has more or less links to its historical settlers: English, Dutch, and Japanese.
  • Indonesian is evolving fast. As it is a young language, Indonesian absorbs new vocabulary and expressions large from English. For its users of the young generation, many English loanwords or newly invented words are used frequently on social media.

A proficient Indonesian-Chinese translator shall be well-informed about the above language differences and similarities before making accurate and consistent translations. Meanwhile, the translator is responsible for keeping an eye on the newest developments in Indonesian and Malay.


2. Chinese-Indonesian Translation Skills

Indonesian is a language member of the Austronesian family, in which the word order and helper words play essential roles in sentence wording. It is the same in Chinese. Let’s see an example:

  • Anak itu pandai. – 那孩子真聪明。
  • Anak pandai itu. – 那个聪明的孩子。
  • Itu anak pandai. – 那是个聪明的孩子。

From the above translation, we can see that both Indonesian and Chinese rely significantly on word order. The meaning changes without adding new words or changing the word form, which poses significant challenges for Chinese-Indonesian translators.


For the positions of adjectives, indicative pronouns, possessive indicators, and adverbials, there are also some exciting distinctions between Indonesian and Chinese that are worth noting:

  • Bunga putih itu – 那朵白花
  • Buku saya – 我的书
  • Saya dating dari Indonesia – 我来自印度尼西亚

The above examples show that most of the modifiers (adjectives, pronouns, adverbials) are presented in a revered order. All of the Chinese translations of such sentences or phrases shall comply with the target expression habits.
