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

Welsh Translator in London and UK

 Do you need a Welsh translator in London?

Language Direct can provide you with an experienced and highly qualified linguist who can work with you and offer expertise in the specific field or area that you need.

Welsh translator
Welsh Translations. Language Direct

Around 740,000 people speak Welsh. 580,000 of those are native speakers who live in Wales and 150,000 in England. Only 16% of the population in Wales consider themselves fluent in the Welsh language.

The language has seen a decline of speakers over the years. This makes it challenging to find a good Welsh interpreter.

A Welsh translator must be highly proficient in the language, and must completely understand cultural and linguistic nuances.

Here are a few things a Welsh translator must know:

  • The Welsh vocabulary derives from original Brittonic words. There are also loanwords from Latin and English. However, some sounds do not exist in the English Language. There are also other linguistic features that are rare in other European languages.
  • The general word order is verb – subject – object. Colloquial Welsh uses auxiliaries with its verbs. Possessive pronouns are  doubled or reinforced.
  • Another important thing to note for a Welsh interpreter is that the language has no particular standard form. There are differences in pronunciation, vocabulary and minor grammatical features between the dialects in the north and south, but there are also additional variations between counties.
  • In addition, Modern Welsh has two main registers: Colloquial Welsh and Literary Welsh. Here, a Welsh translator (read about Welsh translation) must also know the type of document to be translated in order to use the right register.

Hire a highly qualified Welsh translator through Language Direct; call us today.
