Translate[g, {x, y, ...}]
represents graphics primitives g translated by the vector {x, y, ...}.
  • Translate[g, {x, y, ...}] in effect adds {x, y, ...} to each set of coordinates that appear in the graphics primitives g.
  • For objects specified with scaled coordinates Scaled[{x, y}], Translate effectively applies its transformation to the corresponding ordinary coordinates.
  • Normal[expr] if possible replaces all Translate[gi, ...] constructs by versions of the gi in which the coordinates have explicitly been transformed.
