The language industry is swimming in a sea of standards, and it is easy to get lost! By understanding the fundamental standards available to us and how to use them, we can work more efficiently and productively. This session will take a practical look at core standards such as TMX, SRX, ITS, and XLIFF. We'll look at these four standards and use a sample project and open-source tools to demonstrate how they can help LSPs meet customer requirements and increase flexibility by eliminating tool dependence and challenges of multiple file formats.
