Status

Each IE version has a specific status. The following statuses are supported:

  • Draft

  • Review

  • Approved

  • ForTranslation

  • Translated

  • Obsolete

Draft

The IE is in working state and can be edited. This is the only state that an IE can be edited. In order to be able to track changes (compare) between internal progress, make a new revision.

Review

The IE is intended to be reviewed by someone else. The IE cannot be edited. To edit the IE, first make a new revision.

Approved

The IE has been approved. The IE can be sent for translation. The IE cannot be edited. To edit the IE, first make a new version.

For Translation

The IE has been sent for translation, but not all translations have returned. The IE cannot be edited. To edit the IE, first make a new version.

Translated

The IE has been sent for translation and all translations have been returned by the translator. The IE cannot be edited. To edit the IE, first make a new version.

Obsolete

State transitions

Status and version can only change from a specific state. A state is a combination of status and version. Status Obsolete can be set from any status (except from “For Translation”).

It is also possible to change from Draft directly to Approved.
