Inertial reference frames are those frames which are either at rest or moing uniformly with respect a fixed point.
Frames, if differing by translation of axes, given that both the differing frames are inertial, are inertial. If the differing frames are accelerated, the resulting rame is noninertail.
Frames differning by rotation, are noninertial frames.
