Examples:

“Still, Cosme is bound to offer the ‘hood plenty of surprises, including a mescal-spiked, cactus-studded rendition of Manhattan clam chowder.” — Jeff Gordinier, The New York Times, 2 Sept. 2014

“The best part is the vast majority of adults will love [Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse]. Most know who Spider-Man is. We’ve seen many different renditions of this superhero.” — Andrew McManus, The Portsmouth (Ohio) Daily Times, 27 Apr. 2020

Did you know?

Rendition entered English in the early 17th century and can be traced to the Middle French word reddition and ultimately to the Latin verb reddere, meaning “to return.” The English verb render is another descendant of reddere, so perhaps it is no surprise that rendition fundamentally means “the act or result of rendering.” English speakers also once adopted reddition itself (meaning either “restitution, surrender” or “elucidation”), but that word has mostly dropped out of use. Incidentally, if you’ve guessed that surrender is also from the same word family, you may be right; surrender derives in part from the Anglo-French rendre, which likely influenced the alteration of reddition to rendition.
