Transformations are pieces of code that determine how Kentico CMS documents, or certain parts of them, are rendered by listing web parts and controls. They take raw data from the Kentico CMS database and transform it into the form you wish it to appear in. This makes them a crucial tool when displaying documents and document related data on the pages of your website.
Transformations can be accessed in Site Manager -> Development -> Document types -> Edit () a document type, on the Transformations tab.
