The official language of Turkey, Turkish is also used in countries such as Bulgaria, Cyprus and Greece.
Spoken by over 70 million people worldwide, Turkish has historically been influenced by many of its neighbouring countries. The influence of various European languages can also be seen in the Turkish language, with many French loanwords visible. One of the most widely spoken languages of the Turkic language family, Turkish is a key translation consideration for international businesses.
Up until the beginning of the 20th Century, Turkish had been written in an Arabic-based alphabet. Now, it is written in the Latin-based alphabet, after a reform in the late 1920s made this compulsory.
