Subject: RE: [xliff] XLIFF 2.0 Core

Rodolfo and Yves, 

Please add me to the *agree* list.

I'm never quite sure how to indicate the next person in agreement after somebody has indicated their agreement with "+1." Should I also say "+1" or do I increment (i.e., +2)?

- Bryan

Hi Rodolfo,

Using a "unit > segment > language" structure looks ok to me. It is one of the two representations I was thinking about.

It does have the advantage to make the segment id un-necessary. Simpler is better.
We may have to think a bit about tools that allow cross-aligned segments, but that can possibly be resolved with an optional id.

The scenario you are describing is a good use case and I agree with the example of process: Segmentation change is one of the modifications the merging tool should be able to handle.

I also concur that clear definitions of the different parts are important.

So, yes Rodolfo, we basically agree.
