The apparent times and positions of moving clocks as predicted by both 'non-local' and 'local' Lorentz Transformations are considered. Only local transformations respect translational invariance. Such transformations change temporal but not spatial intervals, so breaking space-time exchange symmetry and forbidding rel-ativity of simultaneity and length contraction. Two satellite-borne experiments to test these predictions are proposed. PACS 03.30.+p
