Translation:What is the distance between Jakarta and Bali?
How far is it from Jakarta to Bali as mentioned by Stephen is correct as far as I know. that is what I put first.
Then I tried "How far is Jakarta-Bali" Not accepted. Then I tried "How far is the distance Jakarta-Bali" Not accepted. So must be "How far is the distance of Jakarta-Bali". That is not english where I come from. Indo English is not a language. Some people say we are not translating phrases but words. Sounds like the kind of rubbish you get from "Academics" who dont want to admit they are wrong to me.
