NUMBER OF MALAY SPEAKERS
More than 215 million Malay speakers are scattered throughout Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Brunei, and parts of Thailand.
MALAY is a lingua franca—or common language—throughout the Malay Archipelago, the group of islands between mainland Southeast Asia and Australia. More than 215 million Malay speakers are scattered throughout Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Brunei, and parts of Thailand.
Malay uses the standard Latin alphabet, but as in many Asian languages, the form of address is very important. For example, the word “you” alone can be translated into a significant array of choices depending on the formality of the situation, the relationship between the speakers, the age difference, the family hierarchy, or if you are addressing royals. Therefore, assembling a detailed description of your project and target audience plays a big part in determining the success of your project.
