Eyeing IT instructions-Let's use English only

Subject: Why We Use English for IT

Why Malaysian Government insists on using English for math and science?

This is because the whole world uses the language as an information and/or technology language. How dangerous it will be if we try to use Bahasa , especially in school. See example below:-


Hardware =
barangkeras

Software =
baranglembut

Joystick =
batang gembira

Plug and Play =
cucuk dan main

Port =
lubang

Server =
pelayan

Client =
pelanggan


Try to translate this:


ENGLISH:


That server gives a plug and play service to the client 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 akan dimasukkan ke dalam lubang pelanggan.
