DescriptionKamus Besar Bahasa Indonesia (also known as KBBI), The Great Dictionary of the Indonesian Language is the official dictionary of the Indonesian language. Produced by the Language Center of the Indonesian Department of Education, it is considered canonical as a measure of which words have been formally incorporated into Indonesian.
The dictionary was first published in 1988, and launched at the Congress on the Indonesian Language. The first edition contained 62,000 entries, the second in 1991 had 72,000, and the third in 2000 had 78,000. The current, fourth edition was released in 2008 and contains 90,000 entries. The language contained within is formal, rather than the informal language used in common conversation, and it omits words that are considered slang or foreign.
The official version is found at the official site, http://badanbahasa.kemdiknas.go.id/kbbi/
This unofficial Android application allows you to search for the meaning of each word. It works while offline, you don't need Internet connection to view the entries and the definition. You can copy the meaning to the system clipboard to allow pasting to other applications. You can also share it to different applications like email (Gmail), Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and others.
