      Title: XLIFF Version 2.1 Committee Specification 01

      Certification by the TC that all schema and XML instances are well-formed and
      that expressions are valid: We so certify
      Clear English-language summary of the specification:
      This document defines version 2.1 of the XML Localization Interchange File
      Format (XLIFF). The purpose of this vocabulary is to store localizable data
      and
      carry it from one step of the localization process to the other, while
      allowing
      interoperability between and among tools.
      XLIFF is the XML Localization Interchange File Format designed by a group of
      multilingual content publishers, software providers, localization service
      providers, localization tools providers and researchers. It is intended to
      give
      any multilingual content owner a single interchange file format that can be
      understood by any localization provider, using any conformant localization
      tool.
      While the primary focus is on being a lossless interchange format, usage of
      XLIFF as a processing format is neither encouraged nor discouraged or
      prohibited.
      Relationship of this specification to similar work:
      This specification replaces or supersedes:

      XLIFF Version 2.0. Edited by Tom Comerford, David Filip, Rodolfo M. Raya, and
      Yves Savourel. 05 August 2014. OASIS Standard.
      http://docs.oasis-open.org/xliff/xliff-core/v2.0/os/xliff-core-v2.0-os.html

      XLIFF Version 2.0 had been submitted to ISO TC 37/SC 5, went through a
      unanimous
      DIS ballot and is currently under publication (60.00) as ISO 21720.

      OASIS XLIFF OMOS TC https://www.oasis-open.org/committees/xliff-omos works on
      an
      XML independent abstract data model, other than XML serializations and
      mappings
      to and from related localization interoperability standards including TBX,
      ISO
      30042:2008 that is under review (90.92) at ISO TC 37/SC 3 and will be
      superseded
      by ISO/CD 30042.

      Usage and profiling of XLIFF and other localization interoperability
      standards
      is in scope of ULI TC at the Unicode Consortium.

      W3C ITS 2.0 defines internationalization data categories that are useful for
      extraction of localizable data and XLIFF based roundtrip of translation and
      localization projects. In fact XLIFF 2.1 provides a detailed specification
      how
      to make all of the ITS 2.0 metadata categories available throughout the XLIFF
      roundtrip reusing the W3C namespace where possible.

      TAPICC is a pre-standardization project at GALA - the global trade
      association
      of the localization services industry. TAPICC deals with best practices for
      XLIFF extraction, usage of XLIFF as Localization payload etc. TAPICC Track 1
      WGs
      3 & 2 are of the highest relevance.
