Why We Need To Use English for IT


I got this from an email...


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 the 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.


Now you know why...
