Solution:

Translating an algorithm into a programming language is called coding the algo- rithm. The products of the translation — the code for all the algorithms in the problem — are tested by collecting them into a program and running ( executing ) the program on the computer
 

As per my experience and knowledge 

The correct answer is: coding
  
Hope this might help you.
