Peter: These issues will be
considered together with the emails which TC members have sent describing
individual goals of Trans Web Services. TC to work towards agreement on the
work to be undertaken over the next three to six months.
Comments from TC:
Steve: interested in broader views, like
engineering, QA, not just translation. Need to define what’s included in the
initial set beyond translation.
Gerard – aspects mentioned could be defined under
WSMCCM, which is a standard for defining workflow where participants may not
know of each others. Suggests
that we discuss
Paul – on financial side, must be some payments
standards – so we don’t have to reinvent.
Peter – not in a position to fully scope our
work. Translation is the obvious
place to start, since everyone will have interest in this.
Tony agreed with Steve that we should include other
areas of localization process from the start.
Bill to circulate the list of functionality, and all
will reply with their ideas before next meeting.
4/ Schedule Review:
Timescale for final draft deliverables as modified at
this meeting (emphasis added to changes/additions):
- TwS 1.0 TWS
Overview Abstract 8 weeks after first meeting (new interim
- TwS 1.0 TWS Business Process
Terminology Specification; 12 weeks after 1st meeting
- TwS 1.0 WSDL
Documents; 20 weeks after 1st meeting
- TwS 1.0 UDDI Deploy WSDL as UDI
tModels; 24 weeks after 1st meeting
Tony doesn’t think the present schedule is feasible –
e.g. 4 more meetings to complete final version of spec is unrealistic unless
we change the meeting frequency.
Reinhard suggested that we initially work on an
abstract introduction report, then a more detailed technical spec that lists
the exact methods or tModels that will be delivered.
Peter suggested that the schedule can be left as is
and that the TC schedule a face 2 face meeting to thrash out the work very
quickly, and in this way the TC can make up some time. TC agreed with this
5/ Implementation – TC decided that it’s too early for this topic – need to define
deliverables per item 3 first.
6/ Co-ordinating between
Gerard felt that it would be
advantageous to work with other standards bodies, sooner rather than
Gerard will send around a mail
detailing the various file standards that we should incorporate into our work,
especially with file transfers, etc.
Peter mentioned an ad hoc
teleconference between the various localization / globalization teams is
scheduled for next week in order to discuss areas of common interest and
define ways of working more effectively together.
Since all agenda items were
discussed, the meeting was adjourned without motion. Next meeting in 2 weeks – same
time/same dial in instructions.
Reminders and agenda to be sent in
