    Indonesian is based on Malay, so I would assume so

    For better answers, post this question in "society&culture-->languages"

    Malay: saya panas dan letih Indonesian saya panas dan lelah

    M: saya nak makan ikan and I: saya ingin makan ikan

    Google translate said they are very close. First I put in "I am hot and tired", then "I want to eat fish". 

    maybe a polyglot will appear and give a better answer, but until then, I did my best!!

    but sometimes Google translate is POOR!! Especially in marginal languages (where few will use and correct them)
