Subject: Source read-only or not?
Hi all, While going through last meeting's minutes I noticed this request from Rodolfo: > === 6/ New Business > Rodolfo: Request to know if source text should > be read-only or not. I would tend to say that the source text should be modifiable by any XLIFF user agents. In addition to apply some annotations (which would probably not be considered a modification of the content), some steps of the process may want to affect the source text itself before it goes to translation. For example running a spell/grammar checker to help the MT pre-translation later, or doing some form of editing based on a source TM, etc. The bottom line is that we probably don't want to restrict what tools could do without very good reasons.
