Subject: RE: [xliff] SC feedback: Validation

Hi Fredrik,

XLIFFChecker is a Java application and you can find executable versions for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux in my web site. The source code is also available for download, so you can run it on any platform where java is supported.

> Hi everyone,
> During the last inline SC meeting we discussed the validation for XLIFF:
> Which mechanism to use (schema or schema + dedicated tool), if XSD which
> version, what about RelaxNG? How much of this should be taken into
> account when designing our formats, etc.
> There was a consensus that this needs to be bring up at the TC level and
> settled soon so we can know the guideline when working on the
> specification.
> There has been some discussion of this before.
