What are you trying to measure, kjv?
Ounces are traditionally a measure of weight, while a cup is a measure of volume. Depending on the product the result can be different.

There are some good sites that will do the conversions for you, but you need to be clear about what you're 'translating'.

Most of us are aware that different measurement systems are used in different countries (such as Imperial, US Standard, and Metric), but many people may not know that different ways of measuring ingredients are also used. The most important difference one may encounter is whether dry ingredients are measured by weight (e.g. ounces, pounds, grams, kilograms) or by volume (e.g. tablespoons, cups, milliliters, liters). For example, cooks in the United States tend to measure all ingredients by volume, while it is common in Europe to measure dry ingredients by weight and liquid ingredients by volume. To make matters even more confusing, many countries use measuring devices with similar (and sometimes even identical) names, but which are actually different in size. For example, 1 cup has the following equivalents: U.S. = 237 milliliters, U.K. = 284 milliliters, and Australia = 250 milliliters.

and a cup of coffee is six ounces.

A pint's a pound the world around,
Two cups a pint, a pint's a pound.

== My grandfather used to quote that to us. -====
It helped to know that when making huge quantities of bread.
