I would have guessed transcription since it still occurs in the nucleus and still involves the formation of the coding mRNA strand.

Transcription is formation of RNA (mRNA) from DNA. Translation is when mRNA is translated into a polypeptide chain, so splicing definitely isn’t part of translation. However, I’m not sure if you’d consider splicing separate to transcription, or a part of transcription.
