English term or phrase: My specialist languages are Greek and Turkish
Hi,

By that I mean that although I offer several languages, my best ones are Greek and Turkish.

I always thought it was something like “Meine Fachsprachen sind griechisch und tükisch, but it turns out that “Fachsprache” means “terminology”…

Many thanks,

neutral  BrigitteHilgner: Nur der zweite Vorschlag ist korrekt (wenn ich den Frager richtig verstehe). Der erste Vorschlag deutet an, dass noch andere Hauptsprachen außer Türkisch und Griechisch angeboten werden.
