Can a friend translate this text from Turkish into good English, please?

As you know well, Turkish and English are different cultures. Translation is a very important and difficult process.

"Bugün dünyada 7 milyar覺 ak覺n insan ya覺yor. her nsan覺n, genetik, toplumsal, kültürel ve kiisel kültürü farkl覺d覺r. Her insan, bu sosyolojik olguya göre düünür, davran覺r ve konuur. Her insan, bu sosyolojik olguya göre duygu ve düüncelerini ifade eder.

Bu konuda, Türkçede güzel bir deyi vard覺r : "Her insan ayr覺 bir sima -yüz- ve ayr覺 bir fikirdir."

Quoting og2009

"Bugün dünyada 7 milyar覺 ak覺n insan ya覺yor. Her insan, genetik, toplumsal, kültürel ve kiisel kültürü farkl覺d覺r. Her insan, bu sosyolojik olguya göre düünür, davran覺r ve konuur. Her insan, bu sosyolojik olguya göre duygu ve düüncelerini ifade eder.

 

my attempt for the first part:

More than 7 billion people live in the world today.

Every person has different genetic, social, cultural and personal characteristics.

(The direct translation would be personal cultures, but this sounds strange to me. Characteristics = özellikler)

Every person will think, behave and talk according to this sociological reality.

Every person will express their feelings and thoughts according to this sociological reality.

Turkish has a wonderful saying on this subject:

Every person has a different face and a different opinion.

(This sounds better in English to me, because you can use ´different´ both times, but ´separate´ and ´individual´ and ´distinct´ don´t fit as simply in my opinion)
