Subject: RE: [xliff] xml:lang
Hi David, all,
I assume that for target you meant to write:
“the value defined by the trgLang attribute on <file>.”
Also for the constraint: There is no reason to forbid xml:lang on elements that do not affect the <source> and <target> inheritance. For example one may want to specify the language of a <note> element. So xml:lang should be prohibited only on <file>, <group> and <unit>. And, I suppose, on <mtc:match>.
Hello all, I promised I will be back with a proposal for xml:lang that we have so far neglected as the discussion concentrated on xml:space.
I believe that the following should be done
xml:lang defaults should be changed
to value defined in srcLang on the xliff elemenet
Currently, people not defining xml:lang on source or target leave it undefined, which is clearly wrong
Adding a Constraint
xml:lang MUST NOT be set at core extension points.
Setting the value would conflict with srcLang and trgLang semantics
I am going to implement and print this before the meeting, please shout no later than in the meeting if you think this is wrong or you have a better solution
