Add Malay (either Indonesia or Malaysia) language

Will implement in Q4

since the largest language used in South East Asia is the Malay language, this should be implemented. Once translator exist for this language, we can expand to other Watson services

Malay (/məˈleɪ/;[5] Malay: Bahasa Melayu بهاس ملايو‎) is a major language of the Austronesian family spoken in Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. A language of the Malays, it is spoken by 290 million people[6] across the Strait of Malacca, including the coasts of the Malay Peninsula of Malaysia and the eastern coast of Sumatra in Indonesia, and has been established as a native language of part of western coastal Sarawak and West Kalimantan in Borneo. It is also used as a trading language in the southern Philippines, including the southern parts of the Zamboanga Peninsula, the Sulu Archipelago and the southern predominantly Muslim-inhabited municipalities of Bataraza and Balabac in Palawan.

    Dear @ZIA, me and my company, Venation.io, since 2013 providing bahasa Indonesia plugin for WEX (or ICA or WECA). We have implemented this plugin several times (around 4 projects) until now. I believe official language support release will extremely boost WEX selling point in Malaysia and Indonesia. Currently, we also on proposing ESA for WEX. Hope to see this idea comes true !!
