updating


Explanation:
Neither Hermmann's suggestion nor "convertible updating" gets any hits on Google. Nor does "adaptable updating".
Since updating is a form of transformation, I think there are two choices:
a) you go with the very general "updating" alone, which is fairly safe, or
b) it may be meant that the layout of the document is changed, for which a longer version "updating with layout changes" is possible.
The latter I would only use oif the further context makes this seem likely.
