There are almost only documents in German, because EPK (EPC in English) are
the product of a German company. It is a model for business process
modelling. I don't see how this would fit into Umbrello, because Umbrello
focuses on software design. Of course it would be nice to transform an EPC
into a software design description, but this is not possible. Also, EPC is
based on automate theory, so you can basically do this kind of modelling
with the UML diagrams.
