What Does Dilmanj Mean?

Dilmanj (or دیلمانج) is an Azeri Turkish word that means a Translator: someone who turns one language into another one. Dilmanj gets written as ‘Dilmanc’ in Turkish alphabet and gets pronounced like Dilmanj, the letter ‘C’ in Turkish Alphabet sounds like j as in Joy. So we transliterated it into English and chose ‘Dilmanj’ as a unique word for our brand. Sometimes a Dilmanj is also called Çevirmen in Turkey (or چئویرمن). Some others just drop the letter ‘n’ and call it Dilmaj (Dilmac – دیلماج).
