I've come across a question and something i have not come accross before. I think I know the logical answer to this, but i wanted to ask others for your opinion.

My marketing team have asked me this question....

They have a datasheet in version 6, they have been requested to translate to German for one of our customers. This will of course create another document entirely with a different reference. Their question was, could they assign it version 6 instead of version 1, so this remains inline with English version, thus making it easier to identify, that if the English version is updated to version 7 then the German version also requires updating and this is clear from the version numbers given.

Over to you

I see no problem with that, as long as you can retain control and that it is allowed in the document control procedure.

I support the "skipping" of of ordinal identifiers when well-motivated. As @shimonv wrote, just explain this in the revision history (of the document, of the change control process). If there is a "rule" about the choice and sequence of ordinal identifiers it is simply that the relative historical order of document releases can be established, not that the specific choice of any individual ordinal identifiers is prescribed.

Hi,
Wondering if an eQMS is used, then could one rev the English version to 7, and include German version 7 too? Two documents located in the same location.

Couldn't the German version just be identified as version 6G?
... and when they get up dated the English version will go to version 7 and the German to 7G
It would save you having two documents with the same ID and same version number
