I found an interesting discussion online suggesting that the only
difference is that "pertinent" is stronger than "relevant":


I'm not sure it matters much which one we use.  I slightly prefer
"relevant" as it is the more common word (and therefore easier to
understand for non-native speakers of English), but I'm fine with
"pertinent" too.
