ISTANBUL, Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Yelp Inc. (NYSE: YELP), the company that connects consumers with great local businesses, today announced the availability of Yelp Turkey (http://www.yelp.com.tr). Beginning today, people in Turkey are able to create accounts on Yelp.com.tr to share their opinions about great local businesses and services. Yelp's free iPhone and Android applications will be available as well as its free suite of business owner tools: Yelp for Business Owners (http://biz.yelp.com.tr).

"Bridging the European and Asian continents, Turkey has always been a place for different cultures and communities to meet, exchange and develop," said Miriam Warren, Vice President New Markets. "We look forward to watching the Yelp community experience that same treatment as we hand over the reins to the local population and ask them to make Yelp their very own local guide to what's good and great wherever they are in Turkey."

A newly industrialized country with the youngest population in Western Europe by median age, a rapidly expanding population and an entrepreneurial spirit to rival that of any nation, Turkey is ideally suited to develop its own Yelp community for the benefit of both consumers and independent small businesses.

Initially, Yelp's community building efforts will be concentrated in Istanbul, an expansive city that spans two separate continents. However, the full-featured site will be available to all Turks across the entire country and will support English, Danish, Dutch, French, Finnish, German, Italian, Norwegian, Spanish, Swedish, Polish and Turkish, providing users access to local insights in any one of these twelve languages.
