The First Grammar Checker for Malay
For the first time, your PC can check your grammar in Malay. We have just made the first Malay grammar checker for Microsoft Office, featuring our own patent-pending technology. We have just made history, again.
The grammar checker can analyze your Malay sentences and identify more than 40 types of common grammatical mistakes. Of course you can write good Malay. But you need a goalie to make sure nothing accidentally slips through, much like the way you need a spell checker to guard against typographical errors.
We have invested more than a year into developing the grammar checker. We started out with a simple belief: this is another tool that will help users write better Malay. There are grammar checkers for English. We think we can build ours, for Malay. But the scope of making a grammar checker is a hundred times more sophisticated than making a spelling checker. Hence, we want to build something useable as soon as possible. We are not going to build the perfect grammar checker. We focus on the common grammatical mistakes, about 40 of them.
How it works for you
As you type in Microsoft Word, our Malay grammar checker will monitor your sentences and underline possible mistakes with a green curvy line. Then, you can right click on it to see explanation and suggestion.
What happens behind the scene is, the grammar checker breaks a sentence down into classes of words and compare the structure against our pre-defined rules. If the structure breaks a rule somewhere, then the grammar checker underlines it and explains which rule is in effect.
There are way more than 40 rules in Malay grammar. And each rule can
broken in multiple different ways. No grammar checker can possibly
all. Its key role is to serve as a additional layer of checking to

Most authoritative. No confusion.Our spell checker is based on Kamus Dewan Edisi Keempat, officially provided by Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka. It is the most authoritative source of reference. The speller is specially tailored for Malay language. It does not use the English spell checker engine at all. It can provide accurate suggestions for correct usage of prefixes and suffixes ("imbuhan" and "partikel"). As for the grammar checker, we worked with Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka and Munsyi Dewan to review the rules. You can be certain that Dewan Eja Pro is in line with the latest standards.
Business writing often have repeating patterns and formats.
How many ways can you write a "Thank-you-for-your-feedback"
letter? Not many. By using templates in Microsoft Office,
you can easily jump start the letter by selecting the "Thank you
letter" template, for example. Formatting will be readily
done. Boilerplate will be ready. You just need to fill in
the specifics and you have a professionaly written letter in no
time! But there wasn't a library for Malay documents, until now.
What we have done in Dewan Eja Pro 2010 is that we have prepared
more than 100 Malay document templates, focusing on frequently used
business documents such as formal letters, invoices, reports,
etc. You can easily access them from within MS Word by clicking
on the Koleksi Templat button on the Dewan Eja Pro ribbon.
But this is certainly not the end of the task. We are
continueing to build more templates, and will release more to Dewan Eja
Pro users when they are ready.
When you need to translate something in a document that you're
writing, you can access your favorite translation engine, be it Google
Translate or Yahoo Babelfish right from MS Word. All you need to
do is highlighting the text to be translated. It will be sent to
the translation service on the Internet, and the results are delivered
to your word processor! It doesn't get any easier.
