Synonyms of "Transfer" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between transfer and transport ?
A: transfer is to move or pass from one place, person or thing to another while transport is to carry or bear from one place to another; to remove; to convey.
Q: What is the difference between transfer and transmit ?
A: Transfer and transmit have a very nuanced difference. Most native speakers will only know what things can be transmitted and what things can be transferred but can’t tell you why.

Transfer comes from the original idea of carrying something across a certain distance. “-fer/-ference” is Latin for carry as in defer, refer, prefer, etc.

Transmit comes from the idea of sending something across.
“-mit/-mission” is also comes from for “send” as in emission, remission, etc.

I usually think of “transmit” in the context of technology. That is, “transmit a signal”, “transmit a message.” This makes sense because we use technology to quickly send things across long distances.

I usually think of “transfer” in the context of passing oneself, something, or someone else over to another spot. Transfer, at least in my experience, can be used in a wider variety of contexts. That is, “We have to transfer planes in Cairo,” “I transferred the phone call to John,” “The postman misplaced my package, so they transferred it over to me, free of charge!”

The definitions and contexts can be so similar that if I were you, I’d just try to remember a couple of objects that transfer and transmit can each take.

Hope that helps!

Q: He practised the transfer from the wheelchair to the bed and the time to complete this transfer was also reassessed regularly to check his progression. Does this sound natural?
A: @misokatsu: He practised the transfer from the wheelchair to the bed and the time taken was measured regularly to assess his progression.

The time is measured because they are certain of the value. The improvement is assessed because it is only estimated from the measured time.
Actually in speech you can use measure for both, but it doesnt sound good to repeat a word and assess is slightly more appropriate. You can just say "time taken" instead of "time taken to complete transfer" as it's obvious to the listener that you mean time taken to complete the action.

While traveling from A Station to C Station by a local train, you need to transfer once at B Station.
An announcement or an electric message board at B Station informs you about next train bound for C Station. They might be confusing to do transfer, because of some reasons below.

One information tells you to move to platform No.5 and take a limited express train bound for C Station. You already choose taking only a local train, so you shouldn’t move to a limited express train at B Station.

Another information tells you to wait at platform No. 2. When the scheduled time comes, the train will come to the platform. At that time, please carefully check the destination on the respective train cars sign before boarding, more than checking the electrical massage board and announcement at the platform.

Example:
Even if eight cars come together at the same time to the platform, sometimes the cars will be divided into two destinations when the departure time comes, like some cars of them go to C Station but the others go to different destination.
These are confusing for tourists. Does this sound natural?
A: When traveling from Station A to Station C by local train, you need to transfer once at Station B.
An announcement or electronic message board at Station B will inform you of the next trains bound for Station C. Transferring trains may be confusing, for several reasons.

One information tells you to go to platform No.5 and take a limited express train bound for Station C. You already chose to take only local trains, so you shouldn’t move to a limited express train at Station B.

Another message tells you to wait at platform No. 2. When the scheduled time comes, the train will come to the platform. At that time, please carefully check the destination on the respective train cars before boarding, in addition to the electronic message board and the announcement on the platform.

Example:
Even if eight cars come together at the same time to the platform, sometimes half the cars will go to a different destination - some cars may go to Station C, but others to a different destination.
These transfers are often confusing for tourists.
