As you may know, a person who does not understand English can write his will in Chinese or any other language that he understands but under Order 71 Rule 7 (2) of the Malaysian Rules of Court 2012 an official translation is required to be certified by a court interpreter or a translation verified by the affidavit of a person qualified to translate it.

Based on the recent circular issued by Malaysian Bar, with immediate effect, the translators of the court will not translate any wills not written in English.
