Multi-Lingual Labels and Other Benefits Available through Extensible Enumerations

Posted on December 2, 2016 by Dave Nitchman

The XBRL Standards Board has approved the publication of Extensible Enumerations v1.1 as a Candidate Recommendation. Extensible Enumerations allow taxonomies to define concepts that must take their value from a list of prescribed values. Extensible Enumerations provides benefits found in other XBRL features, including multi-lingual labeling, modification of the allowed values by extension taxonomies, and classification of the values in hierarchies for ease of presentation. Extensible Enumerations v1.1 is an evolution of the previous version of this specification, allowing the creation of concepts that allow multiple values to be selected.

Candidate Recommendation status indicates that a specification is ready for implementation.  The latest of the specification, and its associated requirements document, can be found on the XBRL specifications website.
