WHY IS TRANSLATION OF TURKISH TO OTHER LANGUAGES MORE EXPENSIVE? IS IT REALLY EXPENSIVE?

 

As you may know well, Turkish is a language that all grammatical structures made by suffixes. So our word count is small but the words are long.

This is a fancy linguistic term which means that in Turkish, many words can be stuck together into one word. Or for those of you who have studied grammar class, we could say that words in English are often suffixes added to the root in Turkish. So, as you can see from the following examples, one word in Turkish can equal a phrase or even an entire sentence in English.

Extreme examples:
