What is translation?

Ans. Translation means converting the text typed in one language into another language For this we can use google translate. To translate means to convert a word or series of words in one language, say English, into a corresponding word or series of words of another language, say Marathi. Here, English is the source language and Marathi is the target language. The translated word or series of words in Marathi will be the most similar in meaning to the English word or words.

In translation, a sentence in the source language is re-expressed in the target language by using the correct words and grammar of the target language, but retaining the meaning. Thus, for example, the sentence "You are beautiful'. will be translated into Hindi as ‘आप खूबसूररत हैं।'.
