Turkish, a widespread language
Through the span of history, Turks have spread over a wide geographical area, taking their language with them. Turkish speaking people have lived in a wide area stretching from today's Mongolia to the north coast of the Black Sea, the Balkans, Eastern Europe, Anatolia, Iraq and a wide area of northern Africa.
Turkish is today a widespread language in several states and areas of the world with approximately 78 million native Turkish speakers, and several million more non-native speakers worldwide. It is, not surprisingly, the official language of Turkey, but also of northern Cyprus. Furthermore, The Republic of Turkey is strategically connected, geographically and culturally, to Eastern Europe, Central Asia, and the Middle East. Thus Turkish and knowledge of Turkey are advantageous to anyone interested in international business or politics of those regions.
Turkish language history
Turkish belongs to the Turkic languages of the Altaic language family, one of the world's major language families. The history of the Turkish language may be divided into three main groups: old Turkish (from the 7th to the 13th centuries), mid-Turkish (from the 13th to the 20th) and new Turkish from the 20th century onwards.
Modern Turkish is the descendant of Ottoman Turkish and its predecessor, the so-called Old “Anatolian Turkish”. During the Ottoman Empire (from the 15th to the early 20th century), Old Turkish gradually absorbed a great many Arabic and Persian words and even grammatical forms as it was written in Arabic script.
Turkish consequently became mixed with three different languages. However, after the founding of the Turkish republic in 1923 and the establishment of the Turkish Language Institute in 1932, the Arabic script was replaced by the Latin alphabet (1928). As a result, modern Turkish was born.
Languages spoken in Turkey
Centuries of contact with so many other cultures have made their mark on Turkish demography. There are over 30 different languages spoken in Turkey, but a handful are spoken by more people than others. Here are the four most common languages:
- Turkish: official language and most widely spoken language in Turkey with over 60 million native speakers.
- Kurmanji: Also known as Northern Kurdish, Kurmanji refers to a group of Kurdish dialects spoken in parts of Syria, Iran, Iraq, and Turkey. It is the most common of the Kurdish dialect groups, and is the ceremonial language of Yazidism, an ancient religion.
- Arabic: most widely-spoken language in the Middle East. The specific dialect native to southeastern Turkey is called North Mesopotamian Arabic and is also spoken in parts of Iran and Iraq as well as northern Syria and Cyprus.
- Zazaki: Zazaki is the language of the Zaza ethnic group native to what we now call Turkey. It is similar to many of the Caspian languages, and is spoken by somewhere between 1.5 and 4 million people.
Turkish vs Arabic
Because of Turkey’s geographical area in the Middle East and because Turkey shares the same religion as most Arabic countries, it is a common belief that Turks are Arabs and de facto that the language spoken in Turkey is Arabic. Sure, there are some people that speak Arabic in Turkey, as it was once part of the Ottoman Empire, and sure Turkish people, for most of them, are also muslim, but Turkish is not Arabic. Just as the language spoken in Iran, Persian, is not Arabic.
In fact, both languages are very distinct. They have some words in common as the Ottoman empire included a lot of Arabic speaking countries and there are borrowings, but that's as far as it goes. Arabic is a Central Semitic language, closely related to the Northwest Semitic languages whereas Turkish belongs to the Altay branch of the Ural-Altaic linguistic family, same as Finnish and Hungarian.
What you need to know
Facts about the Turkish language
- It is phonetic so it is pronounced in the exact same way as it is written.
- There are 29 letters in the alphabet.
- The letters Q, W and X are not in the Turkish alphabet.
- The Turkish alphabet has some letters that are not present in English including ö ç ş ı ğ ü.
- The current Turkish alphabet was introduced in 1928 by the founder of Turkey called Mustafa Kemal Ataturk.
- In the East, many Turks will also speak Kurdish.
From global to local
As you may know, there isn’t really one single universal Turkish language. Many words and phrases can be singular to a particular area and would be as foreign to a Turkish-speaker from outside the region as words from Mandarin or Elvish. On the other hand, there are some words that can be used in all regions but which have totally different meanings depending on which region you’re in.
Localisation goes beyond the mere translation of content. It’s about understanding the culture behind the specific language to make it look and sound more native to your target audience. So, if you’re planning on expanding your business to the Turkish market, it’s important to employ the right language. You want the language to sound as natural as possible to the locals, but you also want to avoid mistakenly offending anyone. Therefore, only qualified and experienced English-Turkish translators can deliver the right and appropriate content when translating from English to Turkish.
