  • Does Anybody Speak Turkish?

    I've just found one of my photographs being used on a Turkish website and I have no idea what any of the text is.....

    I've tried translation websites, but they're useless.

    Does anybody speak Turkish?

    Here is the website :

    http://www.10marifet.org/etiket/diki%C5%9F-dikmek

    My product is the last one on the page - a floral bag titled : dikiş dikelim

    Which apparantely means "Sewing Stand"

    This website has not asked my permission and I want to know what they are saying - if they are saying it's brilliant and here's a link then fair enough!

    Hello,

    Sorry I don't know any Turkish but I've had a look at the site and I would certainly say it was complimentary, from all the little glowing stars and there seems to be something about number of visits?

    Also, I've noticed that clicking on the link Cantalar below takes back to your website, so this must be a good thing!!

      The Sun newsrag does an online directory, and I had a go at them for putting me in it, but I don't think you can do anything - once you're on the net you're published!

        I had that too, but they got everything off Etsy, only they put the prices in £ rather than $ so everything is more expensive. So there's no way out, because I wasn't too happy either.

        JBJB, As long as the link sends to your website and its not a knock off I'm sure its all to the good.

            Sounds like the most important phrase to learn in any language!

              I used one of the online translators and I got

              اantalar, süslemeler, ِnlükler, yastıklar...ve daha neler neler değişik modeller burada
              =
              Bag , decoration , apron , pillow. and more neler neler changed pattern here
              It still doesn't make a lot of sense but maybe a bit clearer.

                  I'm just bumping this thread....

                  I still get web-hits from the link on this site.

                  How can I check that they're not using my server space to host the picture?

                  And does anybody speak Turkish?!

                    Merhaba (hello)is as far as I got but I do have a Turkish friend so I'll try to get hold of him and ask for a translation. I'll be back if I can throw any light on it.

                      Sorry I can't help you either - I did try a translation link but even then, most of it was in gobbledeegook.

                      I'm wondering if the site is something a bit like craftjuice, which if thats the case then its not such a bad thing but like you say, it would be better if you'd known about it before they used your stuff.

                        If it was arabic, polish or random african languages I'd probably have more chance of helping. I don't think we have any turkish students here at the moment, so I can't ask any of them. At least it does link to your site at the bottom (burada) which is better than nothing.

                          Hi when daughter gets up I'll ask her to look up in her Turkish dictionary but I seem to remember one of my craftgroup mentioned dikelim for cushion?

                              Ok, got in touch with my Turkish friend yunus and here is his translation:

                              Dikis Diklem - Let's sew followed by eight comment made about sewing in general.
                              Then underneath the picture of the bag it says - shopping bags, dressing up, aprons and cushions and many many more items are here.
                              This is followed by the link back to your website. Hope this helps.
