Subject: Invitation to comment on XLIFF V2.1 - ends June 20th

OASIS members and other interested parties, 

We are pleased to announce that XLIFF Version 2.1 from the OASIS XML Localisation Interchange File Format (XLIFF) TC is now available for public review and comment. This version incorporates changes in response to comments from the previous public reviews. You can find details on the changes in section C.2.1 [1].

The XML Localisation Interchange File Format (XLIFF) is a specification for the interchange of localizable software and document based objects and related metadata. The purpose of XLIFF's extensible XML vocabularies is to store localisable data and carry it from one step of the localization process to the other, while allowing interoperability between and among tools.

The documents and related files are available here:
