To whom it may concern,

I am writing as acting chair of the Open Standards for Container/content
Allowing Reuse (OSCAR) committee in the Localization Industry Standards
Association (LISA - http://www.lisa.org). I certify that two standards
maintained by OSCAR currently use or require XLIFF 1.2 features:

1. The Global information management Metrics eXchange - Volume (GMV-X)
standard, version 1.0 mandates that the source format for default GMX-V
implementation is XLIFF 1.2, and a number of GMX-V features rely on
1.2-specific features. These features were implemented under the
that XLIFF 1.2 would be promoted to be an OASIS standard.

2. The XML Text Memory (xml:tm) specification is designed to integrate
XLIFF 1.2 and borrows a number of features from XLIFF 1.2 for purposes
compatibility and ease of use. This reliance is explicitly stated in
1 of the xml:tm specification.

In addition to these standards that require XLIFF 1.2, LISA is currently
revising a number of its standards for greater compatibility with XLIFF
so we anticipate that TMX 2.0 and TBX 2.0 will have explicit support for
XLIFF 1.2 inline markup model when they are released in the near future.

We therefore strongly support the adoption of XLIFF 1.2 by OASIS as an
standard and request that this action be taken.

Best regards,

Arle Lommel
Acting Chair, OSCAR
