  1. Translation means translation. In communication technology, translation stands for the translation of one language into another.
  2. In protocol technology, translation stands for the conversion of a protocol or the frame of a protocol into a frame of another protocol. For example, an Ethernet frame could be translated into an FDDI or Token Ring frame. The conversion, which occurs at the link layer, removes the protocol frame of one protocol and replaces it with the protocol frame of the second protocol. The conversion creates a new frame with a new header and modified checksum, which is the meshing of two different protocols at the same layer of the OSI reference model. For example, when translating an Ethernet frame into an FDDI frame, the type field is removed from the frame, since this is not provided in the FDDI frame. Due to the encapsulation technique, the new frame contains the MAC addresses twice and the checksum twice.
