Subject: RE: [xliff] ULI

Hi Helena,


In the few minutes I requested for after the meeting I proposed an idea: include in XLIFF 2.0 a set of optional modules for holding TM data (something like TMX), glossary data, segmentation rules (something along the lines of SRX).


A translation job requires multiple files, source documents, XLIFF (or equivalent), TMX files and glossaries. What I´m proposing would reduce the number of files involved, by including some of the usual exchange files into an XLIFF 2.0 document.


If we define our own formats for TM, glossary and segmentation rules, we would be independent from LISA, ETSI, Unicode and others.


Those containers would be absolutely optional but could help in interoperability if developers have to deal with just on technical committee defining exchange rules.


Best regards,

Forgot to mention IBM concerns:

- Integration of memory specification in under XLIFF or separately thru Unicode ULI TC. Unless we can do the following, We are not entirely convinced TMX should not live on its own:
        * <trans_unit> be limited to one entry per segment and not more
        * restructure the <source> and <target> against the TMX <tuv xml:lang="xx"> tags. However, I do not see a need of specifying more than one language pair at a time. That is something never used in practice in TMX
        * fold the <note> and <prop> tags together
        * TMX needs <note> on <tuv> level because the translator may have added comments are to why the text was translated this way

As mentioned, I'd like to call an off-line meeting. Please write me if you are interested. Agenda:

- I have some idea of the initial focus area: SRX and TMX related. Specifically,
       1. TR29 specifying the definition and types of textual segmentation rules that applies across the entire life cycle of content, not just during translation phase.

       2. SRX being the interchange standards for #1.

       3. CLDR to publish language specific segmentation behavior. Following the core/module concept, the specialty module would not be expected to be 100% interoperable. However, core should.

       4. Sort out whether there is a need for memory specific standards outside XLIFF. I have a list of concerns and issues to share. See below.
- Any of the above does not belong in Unicode? I need your input on what to stay out of or mind my own business and WHY? What type of interaction point would be needed between the two?

I plan to call this meeting soon before I kick off the ULI activity on the Unicode side. Please write me by noon EDT Wed May 4th with a few availability options and I will send invitation shortly after. I will not be able to accommodate all the requirements, my apologies in advance.

Best regards,

RE: [xliff] ULI

I see Helena as the current TC officer, she might clarify this in
today's meeting.
