Translucent means semitransparent. This means that objects which are translucent allow light to pass through diffusely. In this way, objects which are seen through a translucent screen are not distinctly seen.
When some light is able to pass through an object, with diffusion, that object is translucent, is not to be confused with transparent, as there is no diffusion with transparent light. You can find more information here: http://www.englishforums.com/English/TransparentVsTranslucent/zqpxr/post.htm
Translucent is not at all transparent. Translucent allows light to go through, however, the other side is still not able to be seen. This is great for privacy, such as a frosted shower door.
