We have revised the status regime for terms in TermCymru has been revised. There are now three statuses: Status A, Status B and Status C.

Status A (green)

Fully standardized.

This is the status given to terms which have been fully standardized by the Translation Service. If you undertake work on behalf of the Welsh Government, you can be wholly confident that these are our standard terms.

This is also the status given to names and titles that cannot be changed, like the names of external bodies and the titles of published documents. The records for such names and titles have not necessarily been through the standardization process.

Status A corresponds to status 1 under the old regime.

Status B (yellow)

Partially standardized.

This is the status given to terms which have been partially standardized by the Translation Service. These terms include those which have not yet been fully standardized, as well as terms from external collections which have not been through the Translation Service’s full standardization process. If you undertake work on behalf of the Welsh Government, you can be fairly confident that these are our standard terms.

Status B corresponds to statuses 2 and 3 under the old regime.

Status C (red)

Linguistically verified.

This is the status given to terms which have been linguistically verified, but which have not yet been subject to any standardization work within the Translation Service. These are mainly suggestions by translators and others. If you undertake work on behalf of the Translation Service, you can be confident that these terms are linguistically correct, but they should be used with caution since they have not yet been standardized. 

Status C corresponds to statuses 4 and 5 under the old regime.

An explanation of the changes can be found  on the page about the updated TermCymru.
