1. To provide with headquarters:
“Despite the derivation of its name, the former Texas Oil Company is headquartered in White Plains, New York”(New Republic)
2. To establish headquarters.
3. The verb headquarter occurs in both transitive and intransitive senses:
The magazine has headquartered him in a building that houses many foreign journalists.
The European correspondent will headquarter in Paris.
4. In an earlier survey a majority of the Usage Panel found both these examples to be unacceptable in formal writing. Although ample citational evidence exists for these usages, writers who wish to avoid criticism should consider the use of alternative expressions, for example: The magazine has just assigned him to (or has stationed him in ) a building that houses many foreign journalists.
在一次较早的调查中，大部分用法专题使用小组成员认为这两个例子在正式写作中是不能被接受的。虽然在大量引文中证实存在这种用法，但为免于批评，作家应该考虑运用其它表达方法来代替，例如：杂志社派他 （或者 has stationed him in ） 去有很多外国记者的大楼。
The European correspondent will make her headquarters in Paris (or will make Paris her headquarters ).
欧洲记者将她的总部设在巴黎。（或者 will make Paris her headquarters )
