Computer Jargon

Why does the Malaysian Government insists on using English for maths and science?

This is because the whole world uses the language as an information and/or technology language.

How dangerous it would be if we try to use Bahasa, especially in schools.

See the examples below :

Hardware = barangkeras
Software = baranglembut
Joystick = batang gembira
Plug and play = cucuk dan main
Port = lubang
Server = pelayan
Client = pelanggan

Try to translate this :

IN ENGLISH :

That server gives a plug and play service to the clients using either hardware or software joystick.

The joystick goes into the port of the client.

Now in BAHASA :

Pelayan itu memberi pelanggannya layanan cucuk dan main dengan menggunakan batang gembira jenis keras atau lembut.

Batang gembira itu dimasukkan ke dalam lubang pelanggan.
