What is the meaning of "transformed away" in the following sentence?
The strong equivalence principle states that motion due to gravitation is equivalent to acceleration in a “free fall” in a curved space time. An observer inside a box e.g. in a spaceship, will feel no gravity. So gravity is transformed away by acceleration. Inside the box the laws of physics will be the same as in a Galileo inertial frame.

Does "gravity is transformed away by acceleration" mean "gravity is transformed by acceleration and gravity is away by acceleration" ?
that is, does "gravity is transformed away by acceleration" mean "gravity is transformed to acceleration and gravity is away to zero(no gravity)" ?
