This work replaces earlier ones of the kind: it is more compendious, more accurate, more up-to-date in its word- equivalents and typographical arrangements. The authors can be relied upon for slight corrections and necessary additions as the two languages evolve. All of us who have taught or studied Indonesian or Malay wish we might have had this work a decade or so ago. Forty years ago we learned Dutch or we did not gain access to materials in [Indonesian] Malay, Javanese, or other languages of the Netherlands East Indies. Professor Echols has pioneered in giving Americans linguistic entree to Indonesia and Indonesians a more direct access to American English. ~Journal of the American Oriental Society (August 1977)
"We juru juru bahasa (translators) have long awaited this valuable dictionary. This dictionary will be useful not only to Indonesians, but also to the so- called 'overseas Chinese' from Java and Malaysia, and the forgotten 'Dutch Indonesians'...." ~Professional Translator (Summer 1975)
