Subject: RE: [xliff] 1.2 to 2.0 Gaps and Proposals

Hi Ryan, all,

Sorry for the delay: I'm just swamped and can't find the time to read emails anymore.

I suppose some mechanism similar to the subType we're using in inline codes and other places could allow for custom values while making sure a top-level category is also declared.

Since we are discussing values for match type: I'm still not convinced that the latest list makes sense:

am - Assembled Match
ebm - Example-based Machine Translation
idm - ID-based Match
ice - In-Context Exact Match
mt - Machine Translation
tm - Translation Memory Match

- 'Example-based Machine Translation' should not be there IMO: it's just MT, what type of MT is not relevant (but could be a candidate for the subtype)
- 'In-Context Exact Match' IMO should be 'in-context' only: the fact that's an exact one is captured in the similarity (and it could be an in-context fuzzy too).

I assume you mean: allow more than one <mtc:matches> where we currently allow one? Not in *all* extensions point. right?

- reference='yes\no' and allowing a different language for xml:lang in those with reference='yes' seems ok to me.
- source not being present... I don't know. If we do that for those 'matches' why not for the normalmatches as well? If the source is the same.
I think we mandated the source originally that's to simplify processing: testing for the presence of not of the source may be cumbersome for some processors (XSLT maybe?).

We would need to update the definition of what a "match" is as well.

hope this helps,
