"Menurut saya cerpen ini terlalu pendek."

Translation:According to me this short story is too short.

It's only just clicked in my head while on this question that cerpen is cerita pendek. I feel so stupid hahaha


Had to google "cerpen". Here is a suggestion: replace "cerpen" in the sentence with "cerpen (cerita pendek)"


It's a word with a defined meaning https://kbbi.web.id/cerpen


My frustration is that sometimes "menurut saya" is translated on this website as "according to me" and at other times as "in my opinion", however the website doesn't accept both, although they are interchangable in everyday Bahasa I.
