تصرّف


Explanation:

I agree to the word ' مطابقت' given by Asghar Bhatti Sb. but this is more inclined to give the meaning of 'in accordance with' and we will have to say ' مطابقت میں لانا ، کرنا یا ڈھالنا ' to express 'adapt' or 'adaptation'. Meanwhile, I want to suggest another word ' تصرّف ' which is a noun and gives the meanings of 'the change made in order to suit and fit for the new use' and during the use of this word in lieu of 'adaptation', you do not require any verb with it. In fact all these words express the meanings of the word 'adaptation' at different levels and it is up to you, Kiani Sb, to select the most appropriate one according to the requirement of situation of its use.

تغیر و تبدل


Explanation:
Adaptations range from minor work to major work
چھوٹے سے بڑے کام تک تغیر و تبدل کی وسعت

"Adapt" means اپنانا/اختیار کرنا, but there is no third form of Urdu word for adoptation to deliver the exact meaning. Thus "adoptation" should be translated in its context ground which could be "modifications", "alterations", "variations" etc.
