Hello team! Would you mind giving me your thoughts regarding the following text? It is a translated document for my translation task. Suggestions, corrections, and critiques are welcome :D


People have different cultures. People live and grow along with their culture, including literary works. For example, there is a folktale from Kalimantan entitle The Story of Palui. It is one of the Indonesian local wisdom. The story is still surviving and developing until now. Being published anonymously, The Story of Palui, thirty years later, is printed in Banjar language by a local newspaper named Banjarmasin Post. The folktale is rich of cultural values which are highly treasured in societies.

The focus of this study encompasses the local wisdom of Banjar's culture regarding the human beings, their self-development, as well as their interconnection between God, nature, other people, and theirselves.
