Translucent, Transparent, or Opaque?

These three terms come up fairly often.  Explained as follows:

Translucent: This means that light will show through, however it is dense enough that you cannot see through it.  e.g. Sandblast film on a window.

Transparent: A window is transparent! It allow objects, people, etc to be seen through it with definition. The colour of transparency can be altered with a film such as window tint.

Opaque: This is not a see through material and will essentially block light and is therefore the opposite to transparent.
