This idea is attractive, but incorrect. All CAs are empowered to issue
certs for all domains. Although its likely that most certs issued by
Turktrust are indeed for Turkish sites, it is by no means guaranteed
to be true for all. What's more, Turks do speak English, amazingly, so
even Turkish sites might be useful to English speakers.
