XLIFF metadata throughout workflows

Chat about best modular strategy for metadata in XLIFF 2.0


  • Dag Schmidtke – Microsoft

  • Gábor Ugray – Kilgray

  • Heiko Rölke – DIPF

  • Lorcan Ryan – LRC

  • David Filip – Moravia Worldwide

New requirements
New requirements

  • David: MT and automated linguistic processing in general brings new requirements

    • Cosmetic changes to the old standard won’t be enough

  • Heiko & Lorcan: Standards are changing too often. Need to work rather on thorough implementation of the current standard or at least stress backwards compatibility

  • Dag: What is the ROI?

  • Gábor: Adding new functionality through extension points is dangerous

Inline markup segmentation
Inline markup & segmentation

  • Lorcan: Type of standard inline markup encoding should be indicated via workflow level metadata

  • David: XLIFF needs a standardized way for transparently changing segmentation

  • Gábor: A radical change would lead to descreased interoperability over a transitional period

  • Dag: We also sense this need

Annotating segments
Annotating segments

  • Gábor: XLIFF needs to put forward a standardized way for commenting on segment and subsegment level

    • Standardize inputs from CAT tools

      • Status flags, QA warnings etc.

  • Lorcan: Standardize for both source and target

  • David: First segmentation needs to be rectified to achieve this goal

  • Heiko: Need to mark notes as read only

Blob and skeleton
BLOB and skeleton

  • Dag: Currently no standardized resizing roundtrip exists

    • Need support for containing and round-tripping standard resource types such as dialogs

  • Gábor: Current skeleton concept should be greatly enhanced with standardized metadata re rendering, processing, ~ mime-types

  • David: BLOB vs. structured skeleton

Automated linguistic processing
Automated linguistic processing

  • David: This area seems like a heavy separate module in XLIFF 2.0

    • Automated TM and MT application

    • Semantic and morphologic tagging

  • Lorcan:

    • Advanced Leverage metadata throughout workflow


Thanks for your attention

Back pocket questions
Back-pocket questions

  • To all: Which parts of the standard must be backwards compatible in your view?

  • Some typical trap-points that metadata tend not to survive?
