When we learnt about this great work last year, our director immediately approached the Foundation office to offer our contribution to this great cause.

Siraj took on two entrepreneurs under his care immediately. He committed with full passion to the two startups. They were given weekly regular sessions over the phone. Both the businesses were successful in submitting their completed business plans and were invited to a great graduation forum on 13 and 14 October 2017.

Siraj volunteered to attend the forum and to the opportunity to meet, congratulate and support his mentees in person.

He says “The forum was an amazing experience, one of its kind I have ever experienced.  I could feel the fire, the passion, the hunger to succeed, the urge to do something, when I met and spoke to countless entrepreneurs. I was impressed by the drive put into them by the TEF.  

I gave up my hotel to stay on campus at the Nigerian Law School to be able to be where the action was. I’m so glad I did that. The days started about 7am and I was out with the young people until just before midnight. I was amazed by their questions, their height of motivation, their stories… From chicken farming, E-learning, prosthetic limbs, hair dressers, fashion designers, engineers, solar pv, organic beauty products, a language school, farming equipment, oil and gas. What a variety! I wish them all the success and wait to hear from the dozens who wanted me to follow their progress as it unfolds.”

Introduction to the Turkish Language

Also known as Istanbul Turkish or Anatolian Turkish, the Turkish language comes from the Turkic language family. There are 63 million native speakers worldwide, most of them located in Turkey, as well as in Iraq, Germany, Northern Cyprus, Bulgaria, Kosovo, Albania, Greece, Macedonia, Netherlands, and other parts of Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia.

Turkish is the official language in Turkey. Cyprus has also declared it one of its official languages.

Influence from and to other languages

The Greek and French languages had great influence in the Turkish vocabulary. Here are some words that are derived from French:

  • enflasyon = inflation
  • döviz = currency
  • finansman = financing
  • resesyon = recession
  • kriz = crisis
  • bono = bond

English influence contributed mostly on technical terms:

  • çekup = check up
  • kampüs = campus
  • dizayn = design
  • kokpit = cockpit
  • reyting = rating
  • brifing = briefing
  • site, data, hacker, mortgage, shop, fast food, star
  • miting = meeting

There are also Turkish words that are now commonly used in English:

  • divan
  • kiosk from “köşk” meaning open pavillon
  • agha or aga from “ağa” meaning chief
  • kayak from “kayık”
  • food words such as baklava, doner kebab from “döner kebap”, shish kebab from “şiş kebap”, and
    yogurt from “yoğurt”

What a good Turkish translator should know:

If you need document translation services either for business, academic or legal purposes, getting good interpreters and translators is a must.

Turkish is an agglutinative language, forming words by combining morphemes. It uses a lot of affixes, mostly suffixes to make words, and thus results to extremely long words. Here is an example:

Çekoslovakyalılaştıramadıklarımızdanmışsınız, which means “You are said to be one of those that we couldn’t manage to convert to a Czechoslovak”.

Word order is usually subject -object -verb. There are six noun cases, but no noun classes. There is also no grammatical gender. Pronouns in second -person are used to show courtesy, politeness, age, social distance or closeness to the person being addressed.

Good translators need to get a good grasp of this concept in order to properly form words and string them into accurate sentences.

Your Turkish translator will also need to know the Latin alphabet,  as this is currently the writing system for the Turkish language.

A Turkish translator needs to have great accuracy. You would not want to introduce your employee ”işim” as your wife ”eşim”, nor would you want to refer to your pet cat “kedi” as a goat “keci”.

Call us today and get the best Turkish translator in : London | Birmingham| Leeds| Glasgow| Sheffield | Bradford | Edinburgh | Liverpool | Manchester | Bristol | Wakefield | Cardiff | Coventry | Nottingham | Leicester | Sunderland | Belfast | Newcastle upon Tyne | Brighton | Hull | Plymouth| Stoke-on-Trent | Wolverhampton | Derby | Swansea | Southampton | Salford | Aberdeen | Westminster | Portsmouth | York | Peterborough | Dundee | Lancaster | Oxford | Newport | Preston | St Albans | Norwich | Chester | Cambridge | Salisbury | Exeter | Gloucester | Lisburn | Chichester | Winchester | Londonderry | Carlisle | Worcester | Bath | Durham | Lincoln | Hereford | Armagh | Inverness | Stirling | Canterbury | Lichfield | Newry | Ripon | Bangor | Truro | Ely | Wells | St Davids
