Translation occurs on ribosomes in the cytoplasm or rough endoplasmic reticulum.


Protein synthesis includes transcription and translation. Transcription occurs in the nucleus and produces the mRNA that will be translated by tRNA. Once a mRNA molecule is processed, it leaves the nucleus and attaches to ribosomes where it will be translated into a protein or polypeptide by tRNA molecules attached to amino acids.
