Subject: RE: [xliff] Attributes for translation candidates

Hi Yung,

I suppose a real would be fine. We may want to force some precision (probably 2 decimals).

We the same: a 'combined-score' that hold a value we can sort on.
It relates to Rodolfo's note about interpreting both similarity and quality together.
Maybe an attribute could be provided. The question then is : How does it work? Should it be required? What processing expectations should we attached to <match>?

If we have a required 'score' then how does it related to similarity and quality (and possibly other info like type)?

Not 'origin', to me 'origin' is more what system created the match. This would be more like the 'datatype' of 1.2

Lucìa was mentioning a possible 'category' for content-domain. Whatever the name, it seems that is something tool would use.

I'll try to update the wiki with all this feedback.
Keep it coming.
