The translateY() CSS function repositions an element vertically on the 2D plane. Its result is a <transform-function> data type.

Note: translateY(ty) is equivalent to translate(0, ty) or translate3d(0, ty, 0).

Syntax

translateY(t)

Values

t
Is a <length> representing the ordinate of the translating vector.
Cartesian coordinates on ℝ2 Homogeneous coordinates on ℝℙ2 Cartesian coordinates on ℝ3 Homogeneous coordinates on ℝℙ3

A translation is not a linear transformation in ℝ2 and can't be represented using a Cartesian-coordinate matrix.
