As one of the major languages used and spoken in Southeast Asia, Malay—also known as Bahasa Melayu or Bahasa Malaysia, depending on where you are—is spoken by a population of over 300 million distributed across Malaysia, Indonesia, and in parts of southern Thailand.

With a population of more than 33 million as of August 2022, Malaysia makes up one of the biggest markets for the Malay language. However, even though English is widely used there, it is recognized as a second language.

Instead, Malay is the national and first language. Hence, English to Malay translations should be an essential part of any company’s strategy as they expand their presence into this part of the world.

When English into Malay translation is incorporated into global companies’ global communication strategy, the company will have greater reach into the Malaysian and the Malay-speaking market. They will be able to communicate and connect with their target Malay-speaking audience effectively. Furthermore, with Malay into English translation services, companies in Malaysia will also be better able to bring their ideas, products, and messages to the world.


Firstly, located in Singapore, and with Malay as our National language and one of the country’s four official languages, Lingua Technologies International offers one of the industry’s most accurate and professional English to Malay translation services.

Secondly, Lingua Technologies International is one of the pioneers in the translation and localization industry here in Singapore; the company has provided trustworthy and high-quality English into Malay translation services since 1996. That is easily 25 years of industry experience you can rely on. There are not many translation companies that cannot last even for a year, let alone more than 2 decades. We are here to stay, a promise we have kept since 1996.

Thirdly, we are proud to be working with some of the best Malay translators in this region for our English into Malay translation services. As one of the region’s most reliable translations and localization companies, we strongly believe that translation should only be done by natives who are based in their own countries. Similarly, we will only deploy the best native translators based in Singapore and Malaysia for translation work when we translate English into Malay.

Fourthly, with the backing of our ISO 17100 standard for our certified English into Malay translation and Malay into English translation, critical errors can be minimized in the final translation. The ISO 17100 standard is a globally recognized standard to control the translation processes to produce a consistently high-quality translation output.

And you want to do it properly and respectfully. When you work with Lingua Technologies International, you will realize that it is one of the best business decisions any business can make. You can reach a wider audience and gain more exposure to Malay speakers for your brand name and products. This will ultimately be translated to a bigger market share and higher revenue.


As with translations between language families, one key challenge in English to Malay translations is non-equivalence, where there is often no direct equivalent term for a specific word in English and vice versa. Additionally, the two languages also differ grammatically, particularly in constructing sentences.

Hence, to ensure that you are getting accurate and authentic English to Malay translations or Malay to English translations, you would need someone who understands both languages, rather than just knowledge of one.

In addition, when it comes to achieving good translations, you would need Malay translators with appropriate training and professional experience to produce English to Malay translations in either language that fits their purpose.

A skilled Malay translator with an intimate understanding of both their native language and the English language will also ensure that your message is effectively communicated to your target audience without any embarrassing misunderstandings or errors.
