Making the online world accessible to Malaysians

04 August 2015

The Internet is a wonderful source of information, entertainment and communication; however, the international nature of this content means that it is often in English. As this is particularly true of technical and educational material, much valuable information is inaccessible to many Malaysians.

Enter Amanz.my, a website pioneer that provides information on technologyin Bahasa Malaysia. Founded by AmanFirdaus, the website is a valuable resource for Malaysians and is important forsustaining the use and viability of Bahasa Malaysia online.

Aman started the website in 2005 because he wanted information to be not just available, but also accessible to his fellow Malaysians. It has since grown to be a top Malaysian platformfor tutorials, reviews, gadget demos and local ICT news updates that has received over 1.6 million views since the beginning of this year.

The website has received recognition from international conferences such as the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and Google I/O, and Aman and his team have been invited to attend the Genovasi Brainstorming with the Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Najib Abdul Razak. After all, Aman’s website has truly made a difference to many Malaysians.

But anyone can do it, Aman says; you just have to be brave and take your passion to the Internet, because the Internet offers endless possibilities for turning dreams into reality.
