This example shows how to create a rectangle and the text "Hello!". The rectangle is positioned at coordinates x=0 y=0, the upper-right corner of the svg element. The text is positioned at coordinates x=5 y=50. Both elements are contained within a group. To the group tag we add a transform. The transform is translate(50 50). The syntax of the translate transform is shown below.
The translate transform takes two parameters, the x value and y value. These value are the amount to move the element along the x axis and the y axis. In the next example, how to group the rectangle and the text elements, and then translate the group, which gives the same result.
