Crimean Tatar is a member of the Kypchak branch of Turkic languages. There are about 300,000 speakers of this language in Crimea, Central Asia, mainly in Uzbekistan, and also in Turkey, Romania and Bulgaria.

Crimean Tatar (Qırımtatar tili, Qırımtatarca) is also known as Crimean (Qırım tili, Qırımca) or Crimean Turkish (Qırım Türkçesi).

Crimean Tatar has been written with the Perso-Arabic script, the Latin alphabet between 1928 and 1938, the Cyrillic alphabet from 1938 to the 1990s, and the Latin alphabet since then, though the Cyrillic alphabet is still used by some people.
