A transfer routine is built on the individual mapping of InfoObjects if any additional logic needs to be applied.
Conversion routines are used in SAP BW so that the characteristic values (key) of an InfoObject can be displayed or used in a different format to how they are stored in the database. They can also be stored in the database in a different format to how they are in their original form, and supposedly different values can be consolidated into one.
