Indonesian term or phrase: putri indo
translate to english
English translation:Indonesian Lady
Explanation:
The answer could be quite broad.
Literally, "putri" means "princess." But in other contexts "putri" can also be used for "lady" or "woman" or "miss" or "daughter."

"indo" could stand for two things. First, it could be a short version of Indonesia. Second, it could means a child of mixed descent, in which one of the child's parents is an Indonesian, and the other is a foreigner.
If "indo" is a short version of Indonesia, then "putri indo" could mean:
1. Indonesian princess.
2. Indonesian lady/woman.
3. "Putri Indonesia" or "Miss Indonesia," a pageant contest similar to Miss Universe or Miss U.S.A.

If "indo" means a child of mixed descent, then "putri indo" could means "an indo lady/woman" -> "a daughter of an Indonesian and a foreigner couple."

Need more context to answer this correctly. :)
