Would you please like to tell me something about the factors that regulate/control process of transcription and translation? I want to know about the factors one by one..... or you can tell me some site from where i can find such info.

For control of transcription, look up the lac operon or the trp operon using a search engine like Google. For control of translation, look up mRNA degradation.
