This is not a badly-translated movie subtitle.

Hola you all,

Sorry dah lama tak buat kerja, but am busy with other stuff (e.g other translating projects that I need to pass. Bah.)

At this mo' haven't continued yet, but am posting this very interesting bit of trivia....

The word 'default' does not exist within DBP's lexicon...! waaaah....

Seriously. I went to look it up at the mammoth Dwibahasa one, the one with the jade green cover, but no dice. I looked it up in its Computer and Technical Bilingual one, pun takde.

In the end, it's the Federal-Chambers Dictionary that came through.

So, you know, for future reference, the word for default is...

'fungsi lalai'.

ok, ta! see y'all later. :)

DBP seriously need to find a better translation for 'default' then. 'fungsi lalai' sounded more like a fungsi yg melalaikan or a failed function. whateva. it sounds wrong to me.

but you're doing a great job here, Nina.. keep it up =)

Well, to be completely technical, it IS true. But yeah, it does sound 'eh...'.

And thanks for the compliment! Hee. :)
