What is the difference between transcription and translation?

Transcription is the name given to the formation of RNA molecules from an open DNA chain used as a template. Translation is the making of polypeptides (amino acids bound in sequence) and therefore of proteins based on information encoded in the mRNA molecule.

In eukaryotic cells transcription happens in the nucleus and translation happens in ribosomes. Transcription precedes translation.
