honyaku setsumei chuukei henshitu


Explanation:
There are several options for this. It's "honyaku", for example, we translators translate texts into another language. But it also refers to understanding a meaning of something, so "setsumei" can be applicable. Also, when it7S a matter of transferring data, it's "chuukei". When it has a meaning of nature change, it is "hennshitu." All of these defintions, you can find in an E-J dictionaries, I guess.

"Yaku", "Kaishaku"


Explanation:
"Yaku" comes from the verb "Yakusu", but sometimes it is
used as noun.

"Kaishaku" is mainly used for translation within the same
language. For example, when you explain some difficult
concept, it should be explained in other way. "Interpretation" is used sometimes instead.
