TBX-Basic is a TBX-compliant terminology markup language that allows a limited set of data categories. It is intended for terminology resources that are commonly developed to support translation and localization processes. The purpose of TBX-Basic is to formalize the translation and localization industry's needs for terminology markup in an XML standard, in order to increase the ability to exchange terminology resources between users and to use these resources in various computerized environments.
TBX-Basic was developed by the Terminology Special Interest Group (SIG).
