Kami mengangkat James sebagai ketua.

English Translation

We elected James chairman.

“Mengangkat” doesn’t mean “elect”. It’s closer to “appoint” or “designate”. The doers (= we) are higher ranking personnel if you use “mengangkat” (the root word “angkat” is “to lift”). The Indonesian sentence should be “memilih”, or the English sentence should be “appointed”.

The English translation was updated by the Clozemaster admin on September 25, 2022.

Old: We elected James chairman.

New: We appointed James as chairman.
