Translation:I do not want to make it more difficult for you.
I have used the translation "I do not want to make it difficult for you.", and it was rejected.
Yes, that's another verb in Indonesian.
"menyulitkan" = to make it difficult.
"mempersulit" = to make it more difficult.
These are the KBBI definitions:
menjadikan sulit; menyukarkan; menyusahkan;
menjadikan sulit = make it difficult.
membuat jadi lebih sulit;
membuat jadi lebih sulit = make it more difficult
(memper prefix) + (adjective base) = causative verb.
The verb has the meaning that the characteristic of the adjective will increase.
(the adjective will be there in a larger degree).
sulit = difficullt.
mempersulit = make it more difficult.
mudah = easy.
mempermudah = make it easier.
besar = large.
memperbesar = make it larger, to enlarge.
panjang = long.
memperpanjang = to make it longer, to extend.
Halo Mas Rick! Your support is really appreciated in this course. Now I can feel more confident using the KBBI definitions, and even if perhaps they are sometimes difficult to read because I can see many example words or phrases, or synonyms that I do not know yet. Amigo Rick, please keep giving us explanations of this quality. Terima kasih banyak. :)
I think it's good to use KBBI, not only because it's the official dictionary, but also because it gives good example sentences.
You see and learn new words when reading those definitions and sentences, so it's also good for your vocabulary.

The same logic can be applied to "menyulitkan".
