Subject: RE: [xliff] Question about note references

Thanks, Yves. I don't see how appliesTo applies in this case since that attribute is to specify whether the note applies to source or target text, and is not a reference to a particular segment. However, if I understood correctly, you would argue that Note 3 and 4 apply to all segments in the unit. This seems logical because they have no explicit reference to them. Thanks.

Hi Ryan, all


I think it is undefined to what both Note 3 and Note 4 apply since they don’t have an appliesTo attribute and such attribute has no default. Therefore IMO they apply to the unit in general.

Subject: [xliff] Question about note references


Hi TC folks,


Can you clarify for me how notes should be referenced? For example:



  <noted id=”n1”>Note 1</note>

  <noted id=”n2”>Note 2</note>

  <noted id=”n3”>Note 3</note>

  <noted id=”n4”>Note 4</note>


<segment id=”1”>

  <source><mrk type=”comment” ref=”#n1”>Hello World 1</mrk></source


<segment id=”2”>

  <source>Hello <mrk type=”comment” ref=”#n2”>World 2</mrk></source


<segment id=”3”>

  <source>Hello World 3</source


<segment id=”4”>

  <source>Hello World 4</source



It seems clear to me that “Note 1” only applies to the whole segment “Hello World 1”.

It also seems clear to me that “Note 2” only applies to the substring “World 2”.

I think that the intent is that both “Note 3” and “Note 4” apply to both “Hello World 3” and “Hello World 4” because there are no explicit references.

I am unsure, however, whether both “Note 3” and “Note 4” also apply to “Hello World 2” as a whole segment.


Thanks for the clarification,
