"Burada olmanı isterdim" alternative correct solution. (should even be first solution) This language needs more alternatives and contributors i can't pass the test of my main language, this is a joke.

'Burada olmanı isterdim' in neresi yanlış? alternatif cevapları da koyun lütfen. Anadilimdeki testi geçemiyorum.

That would mean "I would like you to be here" which has a similar meaning but is definitely not the above sentence. :) You should stick to closer translations.

I can reassure you that we have many, many alternatives for both English (edited by 2 native speakers) and Turkish (edited by 4+ native speakers). You could write "Burada olmanı dilerdim" but not "isterdim" :)

There isn't only one way to correctly state something in a language, dilerdim and isterdim has quite same meaning. But okay i will stick to closer translation.

That's "keşke." It is not a conjugated verb though, it's just a phrase that communicates the same meaning.

Burada is not a verb so you can't add these formatives on it

Unfortunately wrong, just like in english you dont say like "I wish you here". You should add the "be" verb in english. It is same in turkish. You should use "olmak" verb. It is just "be" verb in turkish. "Keşke burada "ol"saydın.

I think direct translation should be like "ben burada olmanı dilerdim"
