Subject: (segmentation subcom) - xml:tm spec
Hi, The URL for xml:tm specification is: http://www.xml-intl.com/docs/specification/xml-tm.html There is also a very detailed technical article about xml:tm on xml.com at the following URL: http://www.xml.com/pub/a/2004/01/07/xmltm.html In essence xml:tm is designed as an unobtrusive segmentation namespace. Its other role is to provide a mechanism for uniquely identifying each text segment during the life cycle of a document. As an unobtrusive segmentation namespace it can be easily applied to XLIFF documents but it would require namespace extension to <source> and <target> elements. xml:tm has been offered to OSCAR for consideration as an OSCAR standard. Checking with Lisa it appears that it is on the "stack" for consideration and may come up for discussion in March or April once SRX and other procedural issues have been addressed. I have also submitted a n initial paper to OSCAR on the subject of translation metrics which recommends XLIFF as the canonical form for word and character counts.
