Subject: Fwd: FW: ISO Process
Can you forward this to the XLIFF TC. The email account has changed from .pl to .com and OASIS will not let it through.
The XLIFF TC meeting will be discussing submitting XLIFF 2.0 to ISO as an ISO standard. The proposal is that this will be done using the fast track process within ISO.
The attached link explains how this works.
A fast track proposal goes in at the enquiry stage and has a two or three month DIS (Draft International Standard) vote and can then go through ISO editing and if needed an FDIS vote.
My suggestion is that as TC 37 SC 5 deals with translation and interpreting we go through there. The XLIFF TC and ISO are liaison member of TC 37. Jamie Clark and myself are the liaison members. David has also told me last week that we agreed to be a liaison member of SC 5. I have checked this and we have not done this yet. We simply need to send an email from Bryan which I can draft and there will be a one month vote. We can then make a proposal to submit XLIFF 2.0 as an international standard. This will then go for a DIS vote. Jamie and Chet will be able to offer better advice on how we word this.
There is no issue with member bodies not voting as ISO member bodies must vote on DIS ballots.
I look forward to talking with you shortly.
