The 13th most prevalent language on the planet, modern Turkish is a continually evolving language spoken by more than 80 million people worldwide. Turkish is the official language of Turkey and one of the official languages of Cyprus, but there are also significant Turkish-speaking populations in Germany, Austria, Bulgaria, Greece, and many other countries around the globe.
With a rich history dating back to the 7th century, Turkish is a complex language with many dialects and levels of formality. Remarkable for its incredibly long words and flexible phrasing, it’s the epitome of a language where a skillful and experienced approach to translation and interpretation services is paramount. Because the intended audience can drastically impact a Turkish translator’s selection of vocabulary usage and even language structure, providing context for your Turkish language projects is critical.
At CanTalk, our professional Turkish translators take the time to familiarize themselves with the specific circumstances surrounding each and every assignment to ensure superior outcomes. No matter the scope of your Turkish language project, we’ll have you communicating effectively in no time.

Turkish Translation Tips
Translation Text Expansion
Turkish is an agglutinative language, which means that it relies on suffixes to create or change the meaning of words. In Turkish, agglutination can result in surprisingly long words (often 30-50 letters long) that function to replace entire English phrases or sentences. This can result in substantial text expansion for English-to-Turkish projects (and text reduction for Turkish-to-English projects) and should be taken into consideration for any assignment where formatting is key.
Turkish is a highly expressive language and there are nearly always multiple options for how to phrase or communicate any given piece of information. Knowing how best to tailor phrasing for a given audience is a reality only an experienced Turkish translator will be able to help you navigate.
