Although this translation may not be 100% accurate, you can still get a basic idea, and with a few modifications, it can be quite accurate.

Hopefully, one day it will produce near-perfect translations!

The Ilocano language is widely spoken, with more than 8.1 million people around the world speaking it. For those who cannot speak Ilocano, translating from Ilocano to English can be quite difficult.
