Hello,


I was working for Hertz company in Berlin then they ask to move to Hertz Belgium.

I have been relocated to Hertz Belgium or transfer?

I had a transfer position.


What would you call that in this context?

I am a bit confused !


Thank you

    If you have relocated, your domicile changes and might or might not have anything to do with your employment.

    "Transfer" means to move from one place, department, assignment, etc. to another and the context tells you the specifics.

    Transfer from one city or country to another implies relocation, of course.

    I was once transferred temporily from New York to London, but since it was temporary, it was not considered relocation.

    "Relocation" has specific implications in the U.S. tax code, for example.

    Not everyone might see the same nuances as I, however.

    Agreed.

    "Relocated" seems to be too "big" a word to be used in this context.

    But I believe it's used a lot in "gang languages":

    --Let's relocate! (after shooting 3 people)

    Yes, but that is not its primary association. Businesses and the people who work for them often relocate or are relocated.
