In Word 2010 and 2013, there are different terms for what appears on your document with Track Changes activated. Original shows how the document looked before any changes. Though you don’t see them in this view, all changes are stored.

Final: Show Markup and Original Show Markup look the same in Office 2010, unless you use “balloons” to annotate your changes (Track Changes, Change Track­­ing Op­­tions). No Markup (2013) and Final (2010) show your text as if you had accepted all changes. Simple Markup is new for 2013 and indicates changed lines in the left margin with a vertical line.
