Pending/Waiting


Explanation:
I think Pte. definir stands for pendiente de definir, so I would translate it as Pending or waiting to be defined.
You may infer if this translation fits according to the column's contents.
Hope it helps.

Do the column entries under the header contain some sort of yes/no notation (ticks, 's' or 'n', or similar)?
