In Turkish it is literally translated word by word as "site haritası"
where "site" refers (you guessed) "site", and "haritası" refers to "map".

However a Turkish native (with no knowledge of English) wouldn't have a clue
what a sitemap is.
It is not a generic word like "mayonnaise" or "yoghurt" which is used
unchanged worldwide.
