I have some query, we have all the SOPs in English Language but our management wants to change those procedures to our local language.
I'm confuse about the document ID, will it be change or not?

If you do change any document IDs, be sure you change IDs of any documents referenced within the changed documents, if any.

Yeah, like @Randy said - I worked for a bilingual company before and they had the SAME SOP number in two different languages. They didn't seem to run into any issues with it, they just added a footnote "document provided in (French) for ease of communication. All documents are available in English"

I have seen clients with systems where they use the same number on documents but add a letter after the number to represent the language. (SOP1234E for English. SOP1234F for French.)

In my previous life, I used to generate bilingual documents (English and Chinese in the same document) and they would be a single number but if there was a separate Chinese translation of the English document, I would suffix it with "-CN".

As mentioned earlier, these are not "requirements" and do it in a way that you demonstrate adequate "Control of documents"
