from the root "terjamah" do we get "menerjamahkan" or "menterjemahkan"? I prefer the latter and certain authorities support that. Therefore is a translator "penerjamah" or "penterjamah"? Again, I prefer the latter (it sounds better) and there are supporting precedents. What do other people think? Where does the root "terjemah" come from? If it is not an austronesian root, then that would explain why compounds of it can be formed in this exceptional manner.
