Wikipedia's Definition about "Translation":
What we call "translation" is a process to communicate the meaning of a source-language text by means of an equivalent target-language text. Whereas the interpretation undoubtedly antedates the writing, translation began only after the appearance of written literature.
Due to the vast demands of business documentation consequent to the Industrial Revolution that began in the mid-18th century, some translation specialties have become formalized, with dedicated schools and professional associations.
Translators always risk inappropriate spill-over of source-language idioms and usage into the target-language translations. On the other hand, spill-over have imported useful source-language calques and loanwords that have enriched the target languages. Indeed, translators have helped remarkably to shape the languages into which they have localized.
As translation is an obvious work of laboriousness, since the 1940s some engineers have sought to automate the translation ("machine-translation" as we call) or to mechanically aid the human translators (computer-assisted translation). The growth of the Internet has fostered a global-wide market for translation services and has facilitated language localization / internationalization.

OUR THOUGHTS ABOUT "TRANSLATION"
How should we define the "translation"? Some people think it's a science, others take it as an art; and yet many would consider it a craft, or rather, a skill.
"Translation" is about reproducing in the receptor language the closest natural equivalent of the source-language message, firstly in terms of meaning, and secondly in terms of style / feel. Translating is a linguistic practice of employing one language to realize the thoughts expressed in another exactly and completely. We may also say, translation, essentially, is the faithful representation, in one language, of what is written or said in another language. Translation is not simply a matter of seeking other words with similar meaning, but of finding appropriate ways of saying things in another language. Translating is always meaning-based, i.e. it is the transfer of meaning instead of form from the source language to the target language.
Translation is an activity comprising the interpretation of the meaning of a text in one language — the source text — and the production, in another language, of a new, equivalent text — the target text, or translation. Translation services can simply be defined as the process of converting a piece of text written in a specific language into another language. The translation industry has become one of the top industries in today’s world, where professional translation services are being offered for the people in need. Translation is the process whereby the meaning, style and information of a piece of written text in one human language is reproduced in another written human language. For example, an English document is translated into German so that it creates the same impression on, and communicates the same information to, the German reader as it did for the English reader. During the process of translation, the translator would only pay attention towards delivering the same meaning to the reader in another language. As a result, no creativity would be added to the content and it would be converted as it is.
Traditionally, translation has been a human activity, although attempts have been made to automate and computerize the translation of natural-language texts — machine translation — or to use computers as an aid to translation — computer-assisted translation. The goal of translation is to establish a relation of equivalence of intent between the source and target texts, while taking into account a number of constraints. These constraints include context, the rules of grammar of both languages, their writing conventions, their idioms, and the like.

WHAT IS THE "TRANSCREATION" THEN?
Transcreation also refers to the conversion of a text from one language to another, but the person who does the job adds some sort of creativity into the newly compiled content. Transcreation means ‘translating’ and ‘recreating’ the original text in a new language whilst making sure it is still appropriate in the context for which it is intended. For example, some people would get the need to deliver a sales pitch to the translated content and they tend to select transcreation services over translation services. The person producing the transcreation must understand the desired outcome thoroughly, and be given the freedom not only to translate the original but also to make significant changes to it in the process. On the other hand, translation that takes places in some specialized fields such as law, engineering or accountancy would get the need to add some specific content to the new content. Transcreation services can also help people who have such needs. Most transcreation projects are undertaken when working with marketing teams.
VARIATIONS OF CHINESE LANGUAGE
Quite often you heard of several variations of the Chinese language – Mandarin, Cantonese, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, etc.
Mandarin vs. Cantonese:
Mandarin and Cantonese are two “SPOKEN STYLE/DIALECTS” of Chinese language. As an official spoken “version”, “Mandarin” is widely used in Mainland China, Taiwan and Singapore. In translation industry, “Cantonese” is mainly targeted to Hong Kong audience only.
Simplified Chinese vs. Traditional Chinese.
Two different written forms of Chinese text, the former with less strokes and the latter featuring more complex characters. Usually speaking, you need to choose Simplified Chinese for readers in Mainland China and Singapore, Traditional Chinese for people living in Hong Kong and Taiwan, although, in most cases, Chinese people in these regions can read the both.
