The OASIS XML Localisation Interchange File Format (XLIFF) TC members have produced an updated Committee Specification Draft (CSD) which was submitted for a 15-day public review. The lead editor of the CSD was Dr David Filip, a Research Fellow in the ADAPT Centre for Digital Content Technology and was co-edited by ADAPT PhD student Soroush Saadatfar.
Chaired by Dr Filip, the principal goal of the OASIS XLIFF-OMOS Technical Committee is to define and further advance standards-based payload and metadata interoperability in the globalisation, internationalisation, localisation and translation (GILT) industries. The XML Localisation Interchange File Format (XLIFF) is a specification for the interchange of localizable software and document based objects and related metadata. The purpose of XLIFF’s extensible XML vocabularies is to store localisable data and carry it from one step of the localization process to the other, while allowing interoperability between and among tools.
The ADAPT TCs launched the Committee Specification Draft for public review in February for comment. OASIS solicits feedback from potential users, developers, and others, whether OASIS members or not, for the sake of improving the interoperability and quality of its technical work. The specification was previously submitted for public review and the outcomes of that review are available online.
