Points can be shifted on a grid by moving them left or right and/or up or down.
This is called translating a point and has nothing to do with other languages.
In maths, translate means shift or move.
Look at this diagram, showing points A, B and C on a set of xy-coordinate axes.
A can be translated to B by shifting it 5 squares up.
B can be translated to C by shifting it 6 squares to the left.
Remember, don't count the starting line as you count the squares.
Combining these movements, we can say that:
A can be translated to C by shifting it 5 squares up and 6 squares to the left.
