Hey guys,
So right now tengah mentranslate. As usual, am stumped by the technical terms. Too bad, I don't have the DBP Computer Glossary right about now.
My method right now is to find the meaning of the terms in English and menggapai for an appropriate Malay term....

Stumped: (in brackets are what I'm using now)

- Default *first encountered in pg 1* - (asal)
definition: http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/d/default.html
- Attribute *first encountered in pg 6* - (ciri)
definition: http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/a/attribute.html

Update: (anyone welcome to a better suggestion)
- Actions: gerakan
- Manage: urus
- Moderate : awas/pengawasan
- Moderator: pengawas
- Maintain: kendali
- You need to enter your username: //in place of enter, I put 'menginputkan'. Ok?//
- friend: kawan
- Setting: seting (this one I checked in the DBP bilingual dictionary. But then again, it's not a computer specific dict.) I do like the sound of 'larasan'... but like I said, we need a proper English-Malay computer/technical glossary. (and I'm broke. Bweh)
- Username: Nama pengguna
- Password: Kata laluan (seeing how thanks to EraFM, it's now common usage)
- Access: laluan/kebenaran, whichever's appropriate
- Posting Access: Kebenaran Mempos //Posting is another word for 'publish', though I think 'menerbit' is damn melampau...//
- Approve this entry? : Benarkan pos ini?
- pre-approved : pra-dibenarkan //pg 8 & 11//
- poster: Yang membuat pos //pg 8//
- View: ruang pandangan //pg 9//
- protocol error: ralat protokol //pg 11//

In other news:
Now that Google has its own Malaysian version, I'll accept that the word for 'search' is 'carian'. Duly noted and acted on. (search - first encountered in pg 4// LJ Search Community //)

Also, regional communities >> komuniti rantauan. ok?

Plus, I maintained FAQ as it is. I think it's an acronym of common usage, so I left it be. I know there's a proper translation for 'link' too, but going by the common usage rule, I'm letting that be.

Heh. I sound so incredibly anal.

*pages done: 1 to... 20 at 0+ severity search... I dunno man. I forgot how I got these pages* Everyone welcome to check, comment, suggest etc etc.

actions, moderate and moderator.
i'm not too sure if the translation of those three are

Believe me, technical Malay sure has some iffy translating going on. And it's official. Oh bwah.

Sahabat? Yeah, that does sound better. I think I'll start using that from now on, and I'll review the rest once I'm done. Or you know, this weekend.

(the way I go on, it's like I have nothing to do. heheh.)

Thanks guys!
