English and Hindi. When targeting sparsely populated and remote cities, it is better to use Hindi + take dialects into account, for all other regions we advise use English.

It is better to use mainly the native language - Malay, but English is also acceptable. There is also a dialect - Manglish (for the correctness of the translation, we recommend using the services of a professional translator).
