    How to translate "to move" - as in "to move h

    Hello!

    Can anyone tell me how to most accurately translate the concept of moving/relocating? I would like to say "we've recently moved", but I'm not sure how...

    Thanks,

    Matei

    I think you can use переезжать/переехать.

    мы недавно сюда переехали. - We've recently moved here.

    how about 'переселить" to move or resettle?

    я переселю
    ты переселишь

    переселел past tense

    That's not correct. Переселить is to move someone (from one habitat to another), usually forcefully.

    Переселиться would be to move oneslef, but it's hardly used at all.

    3rd person past is переселИл. But forget about переселить already.

    The first suggestion was abosultely coorect. Simplify. Okham's razor or Hume's fork (I can never remember).
