It would be in two phases. In the first phase, the team would go to Switzerland, Italy and Turkey from October 26 to November 3 and in the second phase to France and Germany from November 23 to 26.

I am almost sure that usage of 'would' in this context is same as the usage of 'will'. Is my understanding correct? What does it mean this context?

Can you also point out why 'will' is not used in these statements?

Hi,

Can you also point out why 'will' is not used in these statements? Use 'will' if it is just a simple statement of facts.

'Would' makes it seem more hypothetical or conditional. A condition may be stated elsewhere in the paragraph, or may simply be implied.

eg If the project is approved . . .

eg If you accept the job as Project Leader . . .

For example, you might interpret these two versions of the first sentence as follows:

"It will be in two phases." => This is the plan. We don't expect it to change. (Probably this plan has been finalized.)

"It would be in two phases." => This is the tentative plan. This could end up being the final plan, but it is also possible that it might change. Probably this plan has not yet been finalized. (This version of the sentence is more tentative/theoretical than the first. It's less definite.)

Clive Use 'will' if it is just a simple statement of facts.

Can you please give some example for the 'fact' scenarios?
