Short answer per "Understanding Active-X and OLE", David 
Chappell, Microsoft Press; pp 72-73:

"Packaging a call's parameters into a standard format 
for transmission is called marshalling.  The reverse 
operation, unpackaging from the standard format into 
a format appropriate for the receiving process is 
called unmarshalling.  Code that knows how to perform 
these operations is generically referred to as 
marshalling code, ro for shart, a marshaler.  Ther 
primary purpose of proxies and stubs is to perform 
marshalling and unmarshalling as needed."
