I know this is an old thread but I figure asking it here is better than starting a new thread.

What exactly does the -ərək, araq suffix do when used with Adj + olmaq?

Məsələn... fərqli olaraq

AFAIK, in Azerbaijani olaraq is basically used as olarak is used in Turkish. This form is used to form adverbial sentences and it is roughly translated as "as" or "being":

Olarak (ol-a-rak from olmak - to become) is widely used as in following examples: (Best translated by as a or being)
Dost olarak - As a friend (being a friend)
kesin olarak - definitely (being sure)
Memur olarak - As a civil servant ( being a civil servant)
ilk kez olarak - for first time (being the first time)

(Taken from Manisa Turkish)
