It is impossible to transpose from minor to major or major to minor. You would have two different sets of chord choices to use.

D minor 7 / G7 / C7..., is known as a 2-5-1 in the 'Jazz idiom'. You are already in C Major... Just starting from the 2nd degree.

Transpose down one degree to C then progress up to D then E natural then F then G then A Natural then B thats all there is to it BAS

Transposed Chords are D min to C Major, G min to F Major, A Maj to G Major

Hope this helps

I'm a newb myself so, warning, take this for what it's worth.

A major triad is defined by notes at 4 and at 7 semitones from the root (4-3).

A minor triad is defined by notes at 3 and at 7 semitones from the root (3-4).

This is true for any 3-note chord (triad) with root at any note in the scale.

Experts please correct me if I got this wrong.

That's not transposition—it's re-writing the musical piece.
