Transjordan, also known as Oultrejordain, the East Bank, Eastern Palestine, Eiver HaYarden, and the Transjordanian Highlands is the part of the Southern Levant east of the Jordan river, roughly consisting of modern day Jordan.
The prefix trans- is Latin and means "across" or beyond, and so "Transjordan" refers to the land on the other side of the Jordan River. The equivalent term for the west side is the Cisjordan - literally, "on this side of the [River] Jordan".
This map of the Tribal allotments of Israel shows the two and a half tribes settling east of the Jordan.
