DESCRIPTION

  "translate" can be used to translate the atomic coordinates of a
  molecular object.  Behavior differs depending on whether or not the
  "object" parameter is specified.

  If object is None, then translate translates atomic coordinates
  according to the vector provided for the selection and in the state
  provided.  All representation geometries will need to be
  regenerated to reflect the new atomic coordinates.

  If object is set to an object name, then selection and state are
  ignored and instead of translating the atomic coordinates, the
  object's overall representation display matrix is modified.  This
  option is for use in animations only.

  The "camera" option controls whether the camera or the model's
  axes are used to interpret the translation vector.

USAGE

  translate vector [,selection [,state [,camera [,object ]]]]

PYMOL API

   cmd.translate(list vector, string selection = "all", int state = 0,
                 int camera = 1, string object = None)

EXAMPLES

  translate [1,0,0], name ca

NOTES

  if state = 0, then only visible state(s) are affected.
  if state = -1, then all states are affected.
