Subject: Glossaries in XLIFF 2.0

Hi All,


Current version of XLIFF (1.2) and older ones all have a placeholder for storing a glossary in the header. So far, the existing <glossary> element has not been useful because there is no indication on how to store glossary terms in it. There isn’t a well-defined way to store terms ensuring interoperability.


We have a request in the wiki for storing term proposals in an XLIFF file. The request is located here: http://wiki.oasis-open.org/xliff/XLIFF2.0/FeatureTracking#XLIFF2.0.2BAC8-Feature.2BAC8-TermProposals.TermProposals . Current owner of the request is Yves.


We also have a concrete XML schema for holding glossary data in SVN. The schema defines 6 elements and 3 attributes that were originally included in the initial draft for XLIFF 2.0. Description of those elements and attributes is available in the PDF that documents the initial draft, which is also included in SVN.


Having the XML schema and initial documentation makes it easy to implement support for simple glossaries in XLIFF 2.0 as an optional module.


Should we move the existing request from section 2 in the wiki to section 1, making it an optional  module or should we discard the request completely moving it to section 3?
