W3C Internationalization Tag Set – Last Call Working Draft

The Last Call Working Draft of the Internationalization Tag Set has been published.
Along with it a new document the Best Practices for XML Internationalization has also been published as a First Working Draft.
I would encourage anyone who develop translation tools that provide support for XML to review the ITS Specification document. Part of the specification addresses some of the XML localizability issues, offering a common way to specify localization information:

  • what should or should not be translated,
  • some terminology identification mechanism,
  • identification of inline codes and sub-flows,
  • localization notes,
  • and more...

You can use Bugzilla to point out issues and provide comments. The review period lasts until June-30 (6 weeks).
