Origin & History of “transfer”
Transfer comes via Old French transferer from Latin trānsferre ‘carry across’. this was a compound verb formed from the prefix trāns- ‘across’ (a distant relative of English through) and ferre ‘carry’ (a relative of English bear, birth, fertile, etc). Its past participle trānslātus gave English translate.
