Explanation: The Japanese indicates an organization which "belongs" directly to another one, so there's a question of hierarchy here, where the higher organization has direct management or control of the lower organization or the lower organization reports directly to the higher one. Without more context, it is difficult to say which term would be best. I do think that the relationship is tighter than suggested by the term "affiliated". Again, without more context, it's even more difficult to equate this term with an employee position.
