    I suggest that the first definition above is very rarely heard in English (I am over 70, read and listen widely, and have never seen the word before). I had to look at dictionary.com. It is possibly technically correct but may not help most readers. The last definition 'considerateness' is not appropriate - see the first definition in dictionary.com which is the common understanding. And I think that 'reason' is also quite far from the meaning of 'pertimbangan' - I hope that other readers could comment on this. I tend to agree with the following definitions of 'pertimbangan': 1. judgment, opinion. 2. consideration. 3. review ---- this is is from Echols & Schadily's 1972 (pocket) edition of An Indonesian-English Dictionary (Cornell University 1961) so it is an old source. I feel that the Kamus Bahasa Indonesia online definition of 'pertimbangan' as 'pendapat' seems rather limited; my 1988 hardcopy of Kamus Besar Bhs Indonesia adds 'putusan' and 'pikiran'. However it could mean that 'pendapat' also has a wide semantic range. A quick search on 'pertimbangan' indicates a formal judicial and review dimension such as in 'Dewan Pertimbangan Agung' and 'Majelis Pertimbangan ... ' in various departments/ organisations. I am not a language expert, however I taught in Indonesia for 12 yrs using Bhs Indonesia and continue using Bhs Indonesia regularly.
