On Chapter 5, Drake tries to persuade one of the pirates to open the gate for him. The conversation between the two is on a foreign language and is not on the subtitles.

What are they saying?

The conversation is the following:

Pirate: Ha-low?

Nate: Buka pintu.

Pirate: Siapa ini? Bicara sekarang!

Nate: Ah crap.

Nate: Sialan lo! Cepatan, buka pintu!

Pirate: Ah, tai!

According to this GameFaqs post, Nathan and the Pirate are speaking in the Indonesian language. Using Google Translate, their conversation is roughly translated to:

Pirate: Hello?

Nate: Open the gate

Pirate: Who is this? Speak now!

Nate: Ah crap.

Nate: Damn you! Hurry up and open the door

Pirate: [undetermined swear word]1

1 This one is difficult to determine. Any translator is unable to give me a proper English equivalent, and only outputs the same text.

"Tai" more than likely translates to a swear word or another explicit phrase of some sort. Based on the Dake's Fortune script, "Tai" is used three other times by Eddy Raja in context of frustration or anger:

  1. Tai kamu (used twice, no proper translated)
  2. Tai kucing (used once, does translate to "damn you")
  • The only line that I'm not sure is the last one. If I'm not wrong, the last one is something rude.

    @Lemon I re-watched the scene in question, and you're right - the last night is not correct (given the events of the screne). However, I'm not able to figure this one out either. I'll continue poking around to see what I can find out Commented Jan 21, 2020 at 19:33
