Subject: RE: [xliff] Language for bilingual <file>

Your wording is less convoluted ... I like it.

Nicely done. The <target> children of <alt-trans>, however, may also be of a different language.
How about this...?
Recommendation: It is strongly recommended that content within the <file> element be uniformly bilingual. In other words, each <source> and <target> element that is a child of <trans-unit> is of the same language as the source-language and target-language attributes of the <file> element, respectively. The xml:lang attribute should not be used in those elementsThe exception is that <source> and <target> elements that are children of <alt-trans> may contain an xml:lang attribute of a different language than that of the source-language and target-language attributes of the <file> element.

Subject: [xliff] Language for bilingual <file>

Hi Enda & Tony,
Is the following sufficient? Too verbose? Understandable? If not, please feel free to edit.
"Recommendation: It is strongly recommended that this is a uniformly bilingual file. In other words: each <source> element child of <trans-unit> are of the same language as the source-language attribute of <file>; that the xml:lang attribute of <source> is not used in those elements; that only <source> children of <alt-trans> can contain an xml:lang attribute of a different language than that of the source-language attribute of <file>."
