Expert Answer:

Translocation is the transport of soluble materials through the sieve tubes of the phloem of vascular plants fromleaves to different parts of the plant body. Whereas transpiration is the water loss by evaporation from leaf surfaces and through stomata. In transpiration, water is absorbed by the root systems of plants, moves up through the plant (via the xylem), passes through pores (stomata) in the leaves and other plant parts, and then evaporates into the atmosphere as water vapor.
