Subject: RE: [xliff] Unfinished business: phase of alt-trans

Hi John,

Since I won't attend F2F here you are with my note.
I think phase-name attribute is an optional attribute of the <trans-unit> or
<target> elements. The <alt-trans> element contains <target> element so this
is the reason why the phase-name attribute can appear within the <alt-trans>
element. By my opinion there is no rational use of the phase-name attribute
along with the <alt-trans> element and <alt-trans> attribute should always
contain just an alternative translation (e.g. pre-translated material) and
not the old version since there is no reason to track changes in alternative
translations. The tool should ignore phase-name attribute if it is used as
an attribute of the <target> element that resides inside the <alt-trans>
Please let me know your opinion.

Subject: [xliff] Unfinished business: phase of alt-trans

Yves and I had a short discussion about the origin of alt-trans and how
phase was used. The thread is
http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/xliff/200210/msg00005.html ([xliff]
Thought) and
http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/xliff/200210/msg00009.html. We may want
to clear up this issue in our F2F.
