Can you please settle a discussion we are having in our club. We play transfers after a 1NT
opening. So 2means 'HEARTS' announced. 2 means 'Spades' announced.
We are having problems with 2which asks partner to bid 3C. When they do that 3C can
changed to 3D. Is this particular transfer announced or alerted?

Yes, alert. OB 5G1c. Only "red suit transfers", i.e., 2 transfer to and 2 transfer to , are announced (OB 5C).

Edited to add reference to OB 5C, since the original post was incomplete.

Despite what you may see, the only transfers that are announced are 2/2 after an opening 1NT followed by a Pass.

Not after a 1NT rebid or overcall, not after a 2NT opening, not after 1NT followed by a double or overcall.

The only other announcements are opening bids of 1NT through 2 and Stayman 2 after an opening 1NT (followed by a Pass).

Note that if you play a 2 response as asking for 3 but might be a signoff in either minor that is not a transfer and should not be described as such either on the SC or in answer to a question. A transfer shows a particular suit.
