He keeps saying compile, but I think he means transpile..?
Babel is a transpiler I thought.

Good question. This article says:
(...) transpiling is a specific kind of compiling.
Compiling is the general term for taking source code written in one language and transforming into another.
Transpiling is a specific term for taking source code written in one language and transforming into another language that has a similar level of abstraction.
