Türkiye: A Connection Hub between different Cultures and Languages: Ayfer Altay


This article will develop 3 distinctive issues:

1)How Türkiye is a connection hub between different cultures and languages

2)How this influences the translator training in Türkiye

3)How this influences specifically the training methods and strategies employed at Hacettepe University

Türkiye lies at a strategic “crossroads” where two continents, Europe and Asia meet, and also where cultures and civilizations come together. This unique position gives her European, Balkan, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, Caucasian and Asian identities all at the same time. Türkiye is the only country which is a member of NATO, the OECD, the OSCE, the Council of Europe, the Organisation of the Islamic Conference, the Economic Co-operation Organisation and the Black Sea Economic Co-operation all at the same time. It is also an associate member of the European Union and the Western European Union. In the post-Cold War period, Türkiye found herself at the centre of a large landscape, Eurasia, stretching from Europe to Central Asia. This area is destined to gain increasing geopolitical significance in the new millennium.
