Law/Patents / marriage certificate
Malay term or phrase: pembuat bot
This appears as the occupation (pekerjaa) of the groom on a marriage certificate.

When I drafted the translation this morning I jumped to the conclusion that it was "boat-maker". But now I think about it I am not so sure. Could it be "boot-maker". It is an Englishman and British passport holder -- so maybe "boot-maker" fits. Or could it be something else that I haven't thought of.
