Rigid transformation, also called isometry is a term thatt describes move the plane in such a way that the relative position of points and the distance between them remains the same. The translation is one of the four types of rigig transformation, in addition to rotation, reflection and glide reflection. The translation is the movement of everything (each point) by the same amount in the same direction. For the translation is the exclusive property of C: All the points in the preimage are shifted the same distance.
