A New Team for Perak Malay Translation Services, Ready Now!

In Malaysia, they speak Malay—easy, right? Well, yes and no. Malay is indeed the official and national language of Malaysia (and Indonesia and Brunei, for that matter), but most people in the country speak it as a second language, using a local vernacular as their first. All throughout the country, you’ll find minority languages with “Malay” in their name, but whether they’re dialects or fully fledged languages is a matter of debate (and politics). Today, we’re looking at one of these local varieties of Malay: Perak Malay.

Perak Malay is the Malayic language native to—you guessed it—the state of Perak. Approximately 1.4 million people speak Perak Malay as their first language, which amounts to a bit more than half of the state’s population. The rest of the population speaks other Malayic languages, such as Kedah Malay or Reman Malay, closely related to Kelantan-Pattani Malay. Perak Malay is vulnerable to erosion from Standard Malay, which most people in the state learn at school, so access to specific Perak Malay resources and translation services is important. At, we’re proud to provide the latter with our new Perak Malay translation services.

Checking out the Perak Malay language

Perak Malay is spoken natively in most parts of Perak, except the northwestern regions, where Kedah Malay is prominent. In the southern areas of the state, the language is heavily influenced by other Malayic languages, as well as Indonesian languages like Javanese, Banjar, Minangkabau, Mandailing, and Buginese. Perak Malay also comprises three main dialects: Perak Selatan, Kuala Kangsar, and Perak Tengah.

In terms of its grammatical makeup, Perak Malay is a member of the Austronesian language family, which spans all the way from Madagascar to Hawaii. Naturally, it exhibits many similarities to Standard Malay, but it’s also different in some important ways. Notably, in addition to some distinct vocabulary, Perak Malay pronouns differ from those of the Standard variety, with Perak Malay featuring more politeness distinctions in its first-person singular pronouns. Perak Malay also has a number of different words for Standard Malay sangat (“very”), depending on the adjective—which means that a Standard Malay translator simply can’t deliver a high-quality Perak Malay translation. Fortunately, our Perak Malay translation team is filled with passionate native speakers.
