translation table A table of information stored within a processor or a peripheral that is used to convert encoded information into another form of code with the same meaning. There are a variety of codes used within the field of computing and sometimes more than one code may be used within a single system. For output devices such as printers the ASCII code is widely used but the code used within the processor may be EBCDIC. A translation table is used to make the required conversion.
