Transduction is not correct for changing one language to another. HOWEVER, it is an English word. It means to move genetic material from one micro-organism to another. I know this since I am a molecular biologist. The others probably would not know it unless they are in the field.

No, I'm afraid that isn't right at all. 'Translation' is the only correct word. When you translate from one language to another, this is a translation. 'Traduction' is not an English word. It doesn't exist.

"Translation" is English, "traduction" is French. "Traduction" is not an English word. Hope it helps!
