This Amendment No. 1 to Schedule 13D (this “Statement”) amends and supplements the statement on Schedule 13D originally filed on July 5, 2018 with respect to the shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), of Translate

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction.
Item 4 is amended by deleting the first paragraph thereof in its entirety and replacing it with the following:
On October 12, 2018, Brian M. Gallagher, Jr., a member of the board of directors of the Issuer appointed to that board by S.R. One Limited (“S.R. One”) in November 2011, resigned from his positions at S.R. One and GlaxoSmithKline LLC (“GSK LLC”), an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of GlaxoSmithKline plc (“GSK”). Mr. Gallagher is no longer employed by GSK or any of its subsidiaries and is serving on the board of directors of the Issuer in his personal capacity and not as a representative of GSK or any of its subsidiaries.
Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer.
Item 4 is amended by deleting paragraph “a.” in its entirety and replacing it with the following:
GlaxoSmithKline plc beneficially owns 3,697,912 shares of Common Stock, which represents 8.3% of the 45,141,690 of the Issuer’s Common Stock outstanding as of July 31, 2018, as reported in the Issuer’s quarterly report for the quarter period ending June 30, 2018 on the Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 9, 2018.

Neither GSK nor any of its subsidiaries has any interest in or beneficial ownership of any stock options granted to Mr. Gallagher by the Issuer or any shares of Common stock issued upon exercise of such options.
After reasonable inquiry and to the best of my knowledge and belief, I certify that the information set forth in this statement is true, complete and correct.
