What is a Translation?
Translation is an activity comprising the interpretation of the meaning of a text in one language - the source text - and the production, in another language, of a new, equivalent text - the target text, or translation.
Traditionally, translation has been a human activity, although attempts have been made to automate and computerize the translation of natural-language texts (machine translation) or to use computers as an aid to translation (computer-assisted translation).
The goal of translation is to establish a relation of equivalence of intent between the source and target texts (that is, to ensure that both texts communicate the same message), while taking into account a number of constraints. These include context, the rules of grammar of the two languages, their writing conventions, their idioms, and the like.
