This is the hardest question I can't figure out. Thanks =)

31. The word transcribe means "to write out," and the word translate means "to express in another language." Review the meanings of transcription and translation in genetics. How do the technical meanings of these words relate to meanings of the words in ordinary language?

    Translation in genetics means "the decoding of an mRNA message". Like you would translate a phrase in a foreign language(like Spanish)to English,a process is used to translate the code of an mRNA message into a protein. The word Transcription in genetics is like "writing out" a word, but instead you are writing out a chain of amino acids that will become a protein.
