Compilation and Translation

When preparing a program to run on a QPU, it usually goes through two compilation steps. The first is quilc, the optimizing compiler. The second compiles your program down to the machine code needed to run your program on a QPU's control system. While these are both technically compilation steps, we've historically referred to the latter as "translation" to differentiate it from quilc compilation. See How Programs Are Built & Runfor more details on these compilation steps.
