Translation from Russian into Indonesian
Indonesian received the status of the official language in 1945 in Indonesia. 200 million of the world’s population speak this language one way or another. The Indonesian language is very actively used as a language of international communication not only in Indonesia, but also in East Timor and in a number of countries of the Asia Pacific region. It was formed in the first half of the 20th century on the basis of the Malay language that was a major language in this region. The official name of Indonesian was declared at the Youth Congress in 1928 and gradually displaced the use of Malay. Latin script was confirmed as the main writing system.

Some facts about Indonesian:
— This language practically has no dialects.
— Indonesian is sometimes called «Bahasa” outside Indonesia, though this literally just means «language».
— There are 26 sounds in the sound system of Indonesian and the alphabet has 23 letters.
— Reduplication (repetition of a word) and affixation (adding prefixes, suffixes, and infixes to a root) play an important role in the wordbuilding.
— One of the main means of conveying meaning is the word order within a sentence. It is obligatory to put an adjective after a noun (in contrast with the English language, for example). The order of words also marks dependent and independent nouns, because nouns in Indonesian do not decline to reflect their case.
— A strong influence of Islam doctrines can be perceived in modern Indonesian literature. Islam was adopted on the territory of Indonesia in 13-15th centuries.
— It is significant that there are a lot of adapted loan words from the Old Javanese, Arabic, Sanskrit, English, and Dutch languages.
