    to be under way (underway) - unterwegs sein
    to get under way (underway) - in Gang kommen
    to get under way (underway) - ins Rollen kommen
    to get under way (underway) - sich in Bewegung setzen
    under way (underway) - in Bearbeitung
    under way (underway) {adv} - unterwegs
    to get sth. under way (underway) - etw. in die Wege leiten, in Gang bringen, veranlassen

    1. in Bewegung oder in Betrieb
    2. bereits begonnen oder in die Wege geleitet
    3. nautisch: weder verankert noch an ein festes Objekt vertäut



    "laufend" ist missverständlich. Etwas läuft, ist in Betrieb.
