According to Wiktionary, "to fictionalize is to retell something real in a work of fiction, especially by fabricating falsehoods or to convert (adaptation) something into a novel or other dramatic work."

In the context of narratology, fictionalization or dramatization is to treat as or make into fiction. A clue for noticing a fictionalization is the phrase "based on a true story."

Fictionalization should not be confused with appeals to truth in fiction, see false document.
