It is important to note that, many Malaysian sites especially higher education sites had opted to keep the English term within Malay text or in some cases, the term "pembuatan agile" is used.

Therefore, when doing any translation into Malay, it would be beneficial to know exactly the intended audiences for the translated text. If the text is meant for students of higher education institutions, I would suggest to use the English term directly. If the intended audience is the general public, the translated term may be more appropriate.
