Is this translation or transliteration?

Yesterday I was at Chennai airport. Thats where my wife saw this signage. I find this very interesting. I can not speak, read or write Tamil. But visually looks like, for a single word toilet, Tamil language has two words. Hindi language has a single word for toilet which is प्रसाधन / शौचालय.
