Translation Tips

Malay Translation Tips & Challenges

With our focus on Malay, our expert translators are skilled in applying the subtlest of nuances to create accurate, culturally appropriate translations.

Malay, the language spoken in Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei, and Singapore, has been around for centuries, yet translation between English and Malay is fraught with significant challenges since the languages are so different.
Malay is completely unrelated to English and there are very few cognates, or words that sound similar.
The two categories of problems in translation from Malay to English translations are structural problems and problems that are the result of cultural differences.
Malay is closely related to the languages of Sumatra, and related, though not as closely, to the other Austronesian languages of Sumatra, Borneo, Java, and the languages of VietNam.

Varieties

Malay Varieties and Dialects

The most important dialect of Malay is that spoken on the Southern Malay Peninsula. The language is also known as Bahasa Melayu, and in addition to Malaysia, it is also the national language of Indonesia and Brunei.

In Malay, there are 10 dialects, which include Bahasa Malaysia, Kelantanese, Terengganu, Kedahan, Sarawakian, Bajau, Negeri Sembilan Malay, Banjar, Bruneian and Indonesian. The main difficulty for communication in Southeast Asia is that the area is home for so many nationalities, all of whom have brought their own languages.

We use only the best professional translators to deliver expert solutions for your language needs. Our stringent testing process discovers top talent who display a passion for Malay and English, superb communication skills, accurate grammar and vocabulary, and subject matter expertise.

Some of these include Agoda, Spotify, Airbnb, Qnet, Lego, and Travelocity. No matter what the project – websites, e-commerce, eLearning, turnkey multimedia, documents and software and apps, our professionals take charge.

Voiceover

Professional Malay Voiceover

With the rise and tremendous growth of personal devices, cloud communications, and Internet services, multimedia is an effective tool for engaging your audience through corporate narration, marketing, training and eLearning, games, podcasts, documentaries, and TV and radio dubbing. Andovar has the expertise to set you ahead of your competition with Malay translation services with this technology.

Our Malay speaking voice translators must undergo stringent testing that covers script comprehension, sight-reading, voice projection, articulation, and acting prowess. Through our process, we zero in on talent that is adept in engaging audiences for corporate communications, online primary education, advertising, and movies and series for TV and streaming services.

Our expert Malay voice experts craft content that is emotionally compelling and easy to understand using Malay scene-sync and lip-sync dubbing, narration, or UN-style recording, which lets you hear the original speaker with a translated voiceover on top. Our Malay translators preserve the meaning and intent of the original speech, especially when slang and colloquialisms are involved.

As further evidence of our competence, we use professional directors who maintain the artistic impact, cultural relevance, and technical accuracy of the original as they direct the talent. To ensure consistency of translation, pronunciation guides specific to the target area are available. There is a final and meticulous QC check before the final product is released. Our exacting standards attract companies including Ciena, Netflix, Hyatt, and Hilton to continue to return to us for their Malay voiceover needs.

Websites

Malay Website Translation Services

automated

To enable their websites to reach Malay-speaking markets, companies like Agoda, Amway, Hatch, Spotify, and Qnet turn to Andovar. Our Malay translation services take technical, cultural, and linguistic nuances into account. Through our process of transcreation, your website will feel like it originated in the target language while preserving your original business intent.

We support Content Management Services (CMS) Magento, Shopify, and Wordpress, which can all incorporate CMS plug-ins, TMS connectors, and APIs to improve content and save time. We do not simply translate the text; rather, the user interface, knowledge bases, e-commerce platforms, content repositories, and landing pages are localized. In addition, we index Malay SEO terms for easy searching for users.

We put our work through a number of QA checks to ensure it meets your goals for the target audience. These checks are for functionality and language accuracy. We also validate the source to ensure the website is visually appealing and works correctly in different browsers on different devices. Not only are our translators familiar with the details of website creation, we also have experts in the niche your online presence addresses.

Software

Malay Software Translation Services

automated

Where do Netsuite, Microsoft, and Symantec come for their Malay software translation services? They have all turned to Andovar. When it involves cloud-based, server-based, and mobile applications, these companies trust us because we have the linguistic sensitivity and technical expertise to advance their products into the Malay-speaking world.

Our professional Malay translators offer you the industry-specific skill to handle all software formats, such as user interface, help, and resource files. We depend on cutting-edge software localization technology and processes while maintaining technical accuracy through Multidimensional Quality Metrics (MQM) and QA testing.

Your choice: we can take charge of an entire project, or we can meet with your technical team to educate them on the software issues involved with translation, which simply converts documents and components visible to users, plus localization that adapts the software for use in Malay.

We cover the gamut of issues, ranging from the simple: how the meaning of color schemes and icons differ across different Malay-speaking cultures, to the complex: how to create resources from executable libraries so they are more easily translated. We can help you plan and budget your localization efforts, design QA tests for localization, and develop an internationalization process from the ground up.

Into English

Malay to English Translation Services

Our Malay to English translations of your website, marketing efforts, and product brochures are so accurate and culturally appropriate that most Malay-language suppliers and customers think you are a Malay company. Emails, contracts, documents, and other communications sent to your English-speaking staff are also in Malay

Andovar’s Malay to English translation services make all these Malay-language communications understandable. Our professional translators and editors are native English speakers and fluent in the multiple Malay forms and dialects. They are also experts in your field, so they can capture the meaning, content, and technical accuracy of the original source.

Although digital files ease the translation process, we can easily convert printed materials through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) Technology. We also manage subtitles in Over-The-Top (OTT) content that needs to be converted from Malay to English.

Another use for our Malay to English translation service is to back-translate medical, legal/litigation or other corporate communications to ensure linguistic accuracy. Gisting may work for general understanding, but only human translators can capture the nuances and cultural subtleties of literary prose or technical descriptions. Using document re-creation and PDF translation, we ensure that the translated versions come as close to the original as possible.

Subtitles

Malay Subtitle Translation Services

It’s true that online translators do a fair job of translating English subtitles to Malay on YouTube videos, but they often fail at the subtleties. Only a human being can recognize the subtle things and apply the proper translation.

Andovar relies on professionals who deliver Malay subtitle translation services while preserving the intent, artistic tone, and linguistic accuracy of the original subtitles. This is why iflix, Netflix, Netease, and Disney + tap us to translate their streaming services, corporate communications, YouTube videos, and OTT content.

Just like the original, our translated subtitles move at a pace that keeps up with the speaker. Our goal is to be concise overall, so subtitles take up a minimal amount of screen space while fully conveying the speakers’ meanings.

We support all subtitle file formats including SRT, TTML, SCC, VTT, and more. Our Malay translators handle captions, SDH subtitles, and template creation, through various platforms and tools. We are even skilled at translating slang and colloquial speech, so they are culturally meaningful and understandable in specific Malay-speaking areas.

Documents

Malay Document Translation Services

Despite the proliferation of online information, many businesses still prefer the use of paper documents. When you need your documents to reach a Malay-speaking audience, Andovar’s Malay document translation services deliver your solution.

Whether for a one-time announcement or multiple government reports that must be filed each year, our professional translators ensure your brand’s consistency. We ensure that your message maintains its original tone, context, and intent as it penetrates the Malay-speaking market.

When it comes to publishing your documents, you don’t need to worry as we take care of every step in the publishing process including digitizing printed or hand-written sources through OCR technology, translating and editing the source files, designing the layout, and digitally publishing the results in multiple applications such as Microsoft Office, PowerPoint, InDesign, and Illustrator. We even adapt your graphics to impact your target niche while being culturally sensitive.

Companies including Siemens, Minor Group, Chevron, and Transocean come to us for their document needs which include operator and service manuals, technical instructions, Standard Operating Procedures, and marketing materials. We translate all documents quickly, accurately, and cost-effectively

Elearning

Malay elearning Translation Services

Businesses with a global audience must ensure a consistent message is delivered about their products and services to their team members and customers around the world. To make that happen in Malay-speaking locations, companies as diverse as Docebo, Hyatt, Hilton, learning.com, Cegos, and Learnship turned to Andovar for Malay eLearning translation services.

We make sure that your employees, clients, and students learn content at their own pace. This avoids the time and effort that are required for either an in-person instructor or a live translator who simultaneously interprets the words of the English-speaking teacher.

Our localization of your eLearning content includes culturally relevant references to ensure that your learners are neither confused nor offended. We translate English slang or colloquialisms to expressions that are more appropriate for the target area.

Our expertise encompasses Learning Management Systems, video content, software, and corporate e-learning applications such as Articulate Rise, Articulate 360, Lectora, Captivate and more. Our turnkey solutions cover text translation, voiceovers, and SCORM-compliant materials such as quizzes, role-plays, and presentations. What we produce undergoes rigorous integration and testing to ensure that you receive the same results in Malay as you do in English.
