Have you tried this? I hope its not Protestant. (It sounds Protestant to me though)

Thank you so much! The friend who asked the question is a Catholic, but he did not specify whether he wants translations particularly from Orthodox or Catholic translators/editors. I gave him this link, hopefully he will find what he is looking for. Thanks again!

Christ is risen!

The Protestant version is often called the Van Dyke version (the lead editor). It is the most common version.

The Jesuits produced a version also which is also still in use.  And then there is a recent version under the auspices of the Middle East Council of Chuirches which, for instance, includes the Deuterocanonicals (but not all the Agagnomena).
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

You mean you (for your friend) are looking for a Turkish translation of the Bible?

I know and use only the Turkish version with the addition of the Deutero-canonicals:

Christ is risen! (Sorry, I don't remember the Turkish off hand).

Our priest mentioned the Turkish saints (all martyrs) who represent what the cost of baptism is (we had 3 baptisms, including adult, and 5 chrismations for Pascha).

Is a Turkish translation of the DL available?

Christ is risen indeed! (Mesih dirildi!)

Forgive my ignorance: What does DL stand for?  ???

Hakikada(?) dirildi!

Sorry, English addiction to abbreviations: Divine Liturgy.

Ger├žekten (or Hakikaten) dirildi!

Ah, ok. Now I know what DL means, thanks  ;)

There is one translation available, but it is not accurate 100 per cent. (For instance, Mother Mary is addressed as Efendimiz, which corresponds to Lord/Master in Turkish. In order to avoid confusion, the word HANIM must be attached to that word as HANIMEFENDI means Lady.

Some years ago I had a book of the Turkish translation of the Divine Liturgy (John Crysostomos), but I gave it to a friend of mine after I had memorized the prayers in Greek. That book may still be available in the Churches of the Antiochian jurisdiction. (A thin book briefly explaining the liturgy, presenting the text in Turkish and giving the calendar of scripture readings. If I am not mistaken, its author was named Agop Minasyan)

Here are some Orthodox websites in Turkish:
