Translation is process of protein synthesis directed by mRNA; it takes place on ribosomal surface. So DNA is not directly involved in translation.


DNA could be described as a huge cook-book. Each gene present on DNA is a unique recipe. One such recipe is copied on RNA by a process called transcription. This RNA in turn helps in translation of the protein in cytoplasm of the cell.
