Turkish Cyrillic (Түркче)

The Turkish Cyrillic alphabet was invented by Ethan Hunt. He invented it in class when he was pondering about Turkic languages. He wondered why Turkish wasn't like the rest of the Turkic languages: it is not written in the Cyrillic script. While Ethan was thinking about this, he decided to create the Turkish Cyrillic alphabet.

Sample text in Turkish Cyrillic

Бүтүн инсанлар хүр, хайсийет ве хаклар бакымындан ешит доғарлар. Акыл ве виҗдана сахиптирлер ве бирбирлерине каршы кардешлик зихнийети иле харекет етмелидирлер.

Standard Turkish version

Bütün insanlar hür, haysiyet ve haklar bakımından eşit doğarlar. Akıl ve vicdana sahiptirler ve birbirlerine karşı kardeşlik zihniyeti ile hareket etmelidirler.


All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
(Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights)
