Does reading the translation of a sajdah al-tilawah verse oblige a sajdah?

Question:

If the translation of a verse which entails Sajdah al-Tilawah was read, does Sajdah become necessary?

Answer:

If the translation of a verse which entails Sajdah al-Tilawah was read, then Sajdah becomes necessary on the condition that one understands its meaning. If the actual Qur’anic verse was recited then Sajdah becomes necessary regardless if one understood the verse or not.

And Allah ﷻ knows the best
