"What is hardware in Bahasa?"

The boss of mine often ask random questions but this got me thinking. All of sudden I remember my younger siblings' teknologi maklumat textbook that are fully in Malay and I had a hard time understanding it. Nowadays, they started learn pseudocode in primary school! Back in my school days, we do not have that subject thus I only started involving myself in IT field once I step into university.

I do enjoy Amanz website for all IT related news in Bahasa Malaysia. Really appreciate that they make a complete IT related website in proper Bahasa Malaysia just for ones that are much comfortable using the official language of Malaysia to stay updated.  

Here is some of very common IT Term that we always use in Bahasa :-

Some do sound so weird right? We are so used on using only English when come with all IT related that the malay translation sounds wrong. I would probably fail miserably if taking any of my IT paper in Bahasa Malaysia back in uni.
