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, C and D on a set of xy-coordinate axes.
A can be translated to B by shifting it 5 squares up.
C can be translated to D by shifting it 6 squares to the left.
Remember, don't count the starting line as you count the squares.
