One of the difference between -Iyor and -mAkta is ;

 

* Iyor can be used to refer the future actions  whereas ;

  we can NOT use - makta form to refer the future actions.

 

- Yarın kursa gidiyorum

but we can not say -Yarın kursa gitmekteyim.

 

so with -iyor the action does not have to start as it can start happening in the future

but with -makta  the action has to start happening.

The usage of this form in daily life is limited.

 

we can see its usage in such situations below ;

 

* To state the general facts or opinions that are open to debate ;

Türkiye´de sigara içenlerin sayısı  azalmaktadır.

The number of smokers in Turkia are getting less.

 

* In Religious scripts ;

Bir de iman edenlerle karşılaştıklarında: «Biz de inandık» derler. Kendi şeytanlarıyla baş başa kaldıklarında “hiç şüphe etmeyin ki biz, sizinle beraberiz. Biz ancak onlarla alay etmekteyiz.” Derler. (E. H. Yazır, Kur‟ân-ıKerim Türkçe Meali ] [Bakara 14]

 

* In literary texts

 

* In advertiments,noticements, offical texts

Bizimle çalışacak genç ,dinamik ve hırslı arkadaşlar aramaktayız.

We are looking for young , dynamic and ambitious friends to work with us.

 

Ankara Üniversitesi olarak Vyana´ya  bir gezi planlamaktayız.

We, as Ankara Üniversity, are planning a trip to Vienna.

 

* It can be used as English present perfect continous tense .

 

She has been working at that company for three years.

Üç yıldır o şirkette çalışmakta[dır]. [ çalışıyor]

 

* It can be used with participle -An [ with´olan´ form].

 Verb stem + makta olan

1. Yaşlanan ağaçlar ........................

The aging trees [The aged trees or The trees that will age] .................

Here, it is not clear that if the aging process over [past] or progressing or it will happen in the future.

 

2. Ya  şlanmakta olan ağaçlar............

The aging trees..............

 

Note that here aging process has already started and still progressing  !

I try not to use it. Because it is the same thing with saying that "I am in coming" instead of "I am coming" in English.
