überführen

Meanings

1.
to transfer
(A technical sounding term for transporting something or someone somewhere. Not for everyday transportation. Think of an old statue being shipped to a museum.)
2.
to convict, to catch, to find out
(The translations don't really capture it. "überführen" is the act of proving that someone did something, NOT the conviction. Think of Sherlock Holmes adding up the evidence and then concluding "Hence, you did it!" )
