Indonesian is one of the Western Malayo-Polynesian languages of the Austronesian family and there are several reasons why studying Indonesian or working with it is an interesting option. First of all, it is one of the most popular languages in the world. This means that you can meet and interact with millions of people with whom you can exchange cultural, personal and professional experiences. On the other hand, if you plan to expand your business or seek employment in Indonesia, it is essential to know the language or have experts who are fluent in it, as it is the official language of politics, administration, legislation, national and local government and educational institutions. The institution responsible for regulating this language is the Badan Pengembangan dan Pembinaan Bahasa (Indonesian Language Development Agency).

For these and many other reasons, translation is essential. As one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, there is a wide variety of documents written in this language that may need to be translated: legal, scientific, medical, tourist, press, etc. texts.


Indonesian is frequently used in business because Indonesia is considered the largest economy in Southeast Asia, according to data provided by ASEAN (the Association of Southeast Asian Nations), of which it has been a member since its inception and whose headquarters are in Jakarta. Indonesia also plays a key role in world trade as one of the world’s largest exporters of oil, rubber and tin, as well as foodstuffs such as rice, maize, coconut and avocado.

It is also important to point out that written literature is also important, since it has important figures such as the novelist Pramoedya Ananta Toer or the poet Chairil Anwar, whose works have marked the country’s culture and whose translations allow us to delve into the richness of its culture, appreciate its art and discover its people.


The language has around 44 million native speakers and some 155 million speakers who use it as a second language, making it the tenth most spoken language in the world. It is also the official language of Indonesia, but is also spoken in East Timor, Singapore and parts of Malaysia
