translation, reflection, dilation

Translation refers to moving a shape from one location (on a coordinate grid) to another such that the size and orientation of the shape does not change.

Translation is a slide basically. If you are discussing the translation of a shape, usually the shape has been moved to the side, but not rotated, or inverse. This has always been the simplest for me to explain.

One shape is a translation of another if the displacement of each point, from its pre-image to image is in the same direction and of the same magnitude.
