When the conditions are all established,

I found that when conditions are met, the word "establish" can be used as a verb as the above example.

Other than "establish", when I write in technical documents, what verbs can I use?

  • 3
    "When the conditions have been met," or "When the conditions have obtained," or "When the conditions have been satisfied"

    In a technical document, I use "fulfilled". But, "satisfied" or "met" are also appropriate. "established" conveys the idea of an evolution of the conditions, from an unestablished state to a state where conditions are met.

  • @Graffito Thank you very much. I also did not come up with "fulfilled". Also thank you about the meaning / usage of "established". Jan 27, 2016 at 4:29

1 Answer 1


I prefer

When all the conditions are met


When all the conditions are satisfied

I would recommend the latter if you are writing something about mathematical logic.

  • Thank you very much. I did not come up with "satisfied". I am thinking to use this for document related to coding / software. Jan 27, 2016 at 4:30
