Comprehensive Indonesian-English Dictionary

Realizing that almost 30 years had elapsed since the last comprehensive Indonesian to English dictionary had been published — a period marked dramatic changes in Indonesia– AICC’s members subsidized a totally new dictionary co-authored by one its members, the linguist Dr. Alan Stevens. This work assists countless companies and individuals from all walks of life in their efforts to better understand and interact with Indonesia and Indonesians. AICC recognized that Americans have a long term association and interest in Indonesia and creating this dictionary symbolizes this commitment.
