    level or stage

    Hello
    I made a software and I want to say that my team and I

    We don't stop at this level but we are going to improve the program to be a professional one and to compete with other programs in markets.

    Is this correct?

    Thanks

    I would say that you should explain what stage you have got to and then say "We won't stop there, but plan to improve our program so that it is very professional and competes with other programs on the market".

    I mean my submitted software isn't the final because I am working within a time frame allocated but I'll extend my software after the graduation. What I mean by level is the current achievement.

    To me, a level is a recognised point on a scale. People study music, for example, from Level (or Grade) 1 up to 8.

    It can mean a "grade" within a job - top-level civil servants.

    However, if you are simply explaining that you have reached a certain point with your software, enough for graduation, but you intend to continue working on it in the future, I would still call it a "stage".

    No you didn't; you made a software program/package/game... 'Software' is not countable. Internally, in IT, software developers talk about 'base-levels'; when I worked in that area, the team would 'cut a base-level' quite regularly - even daily in the weeks before going public. But I don't think this expression is widely used outside the industry. And why use a noun at all? 'My team and I don't want to stop at this, but...'

You could also use another word entirely - 'efforts towards'? for professional excellence, our software is continousually* being developed to remain competitive.

    *If development is continuous it goes on all the time. With software, customers would find that annoying. If the software is continually updated, the released versions are "..." rather than "____". From the developers point of view, work is continuous; but the market sees new releases as continually appearing.
