Multiple translators

The way I see it the whole translation author block should ideally be repeatable, including separate elements for name, organisation, email and accreditation, which would of course require the accreditation element to ble moved inside the author block (why isn’t it there in the first place?).

Right - exactly. Ideally, we need people who are developing archetypes and think there are limitations to say what they are. It isn't that hard to add more comprehensive meta-data to an archetype for translations, other_contributors etc. Of course, we don't want to go overboard - using links / addresses to other resources is good too.

Once changes are agreed, they can be put in ADL 2, and the ADL Workbench and other tools can fairly easily upgrade the existing archetypes into new structures.

For now, the other_details attribute within TRANSLATION_DETAILS should do the trick. The main issue is to keep the different translators separated, which this seems to do:

other_details =<
    ["secondary_translators"] = <"Ian McNicoll, freshEHR, UK", "Sebastian Garde, Ocean Informatics, DE">

The main issue is probably getting support for this in the tooling (ie Archetype Editor and the CKM)?

If I add the equivalent of this to ADL/AOM 2, will it be enough for the future?
There is also an older related issue on the specs tracker
This issue highlights some potential problems as well, but doesn't have a clear solution yet.

I believe it should be considered at the same time.
