On the other hand, however, the uncontrolled lexical borrowing conducted independently without reference to a general guideline will be a boomerang for Indonesian. The adaptation shows that there has been additions of new words derived from foreign vocabulary but due to the frequent use, over time become Indonesian vocabulary.

And translation, in addition to adaptation, could be used to restrain this excessive measure so that the borrowing does not impact negatively on the development and preservation of both national and regional languages.
