Subject: RE: [xliff] Uniqueness of language pair

Hi Rodolfo,


I absolutely agree that only having one pair of source and target languages per Xliff document is a good idea. Allowing one per <file> is just confusing for the end users, introduces partial failure modes or complicates the implementation of some type of tools.

In an XLIFF 1.2 document you may have multiple <file> elements and they could have different source/target languages. In theory, that would allow someone to create an XLIFF document with many copies of the same <file> element, each having a different target language. In practice, that would be a bad idea as tools that work with XLIFF usually expect bilingual documents.


It might be interesting for XLIFF 2.0 to set source and target language in the <xliff> element and let all <file> children inherit the declared language pair.
