Law and crime translation challenge

Baca dalam bahasa Melayu


Welcome to the Malay Oxford Living Dictionary's second translation challenge.


In this, our goal is to build an up-to-date online Malay dictionary - to collect terminology about the internet, slang, science, law and other fields. Malay terms are found by inputting their English translations, and English terms are found by inputting their Malay translations. The Malay Oxford Living Dictionary is a translation-based dictionary and depends upon word contributions by people who love language.



Many of the newest terms and expressions in Malay are not yet in the online dictionary - as shown below. 




Some of them, on the other hand, are already in the dictionary, but could do with an update - and that's where you come in.



Know the Malay translations of law terms such as "police brutality", "trial" and "freedom of speech"? Contribute your knowledge to our effort to assemble all four corners of the modern Malay language on the internet. (But first, ensure your submission will go through by checking our infograph on submitting words.)
