    a simple question

    It's converting one language to another solely by its sounds (or phonology?!), not its meanings which is done by "translation". What do you call that conversion?

    Am I clear?

    Thanks in advance

    It's called transliteration. Look here: transliteration - Definitions from Dictionary.com
