Sundanese Translation

This page provides thoughts about English-Sundanese translation that need to be considered by any Sundanese translator. As far as my experience on translating, editing, and validating the Sundanese translations for the last 5 years, there are many fundamental problems found. Here are some topics that raised to be discussed. I will probably write articles about the topics.
