The translate() function is an inbuilt function which is used to reposition an element in a horizontal and vertical direction. 

Syntax:

translate( tx )

or

translate( tx, ty )

Parameters:

  • tx: This parameter holds the length of translation corresponding to x-axis.
  • ty: This parameter holds the length of translation corresponding to y-axis. If its value is not defined then it takes 0 as default value.
