Dilemma of Accounting in Filipino


A bill filed by Sen. Lito Lapid asks that Proposed laws should be written in Filipino (Pilipino). Likewise, the official spoken language In the senate should be Filipino.

But I doubt this bill will see the light of day.

A young, good-looking representative from Laguna sponsored a bill Recommending the Filipino language be used in all Levels of accounting firms and Banking institutions. The solon claimed it will Provide a better understanding of the business transactions for Those who are inexperienced And non-English speaking citizens.

The bill received unanimous approval from the Hou se and was presented to the President for signature To become the law of the land. But in Spite of the overwhelming pressure from the members of The Congress, the President vetoed the bill.


She explained that when the English “business” words are translated in Tagalog, They sound very malicious malaswa) And are “nakaka-hiya at Nakaka-kilabot! ”

Very Manila High ang dating, I should say.
