I take it you're after vocabulary and simple glosses only?
>From the latter link, I looked at Bhanot's Malay-EnglishDictionary, http://dictionary.bhanot.net/, which is pretty
good. Of course, the online version starts from the Malay,
and you'd have to spend money to acquire the bidirectional
version. I've used the Collin's Gem Dictionary for most of
my Malay-English and English-Malay queries for decades -
it's a small volume, but very good. The standard reference
in Malaysia used to be Kamus Dewan (Bahasa Malaysia only)
- a massive and scholarly work. For other Malayo-Polynesian
languages, my vocabulary comes from a few publications
(mostly school primers and phrase books, as well as news-
papers and a dictionary for Kadazan) and from my own
field-work on (Western) Cham in 1972.
