Hi,

 

Translation is used to convert salesforce org tab and labels in user specific language.

 

Follow the below steps

Goto 'Customize' > 'Tab Names and Labels' > 'Rename Tabs and Labels’, then select the language you want to translate the custom / standard object label for.  Then just find the object in the list and translate.

 

Use: When installing a managed package, to translate the labels of a custom object. It is quite complex procedure especially if there are many managed packages deployed.
