There are many details of both that you can delve into on wikipedia, but the main difference is:

DNA Replication makes two new double strand DNA molecules from an original double strand DNA molecule (semi-conservative replication).

Transcription makes a single strand of RNA off of the DNA double strand (uses one strand of the DNA as a template and makes a single strand of RNA).
