This report gathers all the Statements of Use (SOU) that were collected during the approval process of the major new version XLIFF 2.0. The SOU were collected between 2nd and 14th April 2014 to satisfy the OASIS TC process requirements for a Committee Specification to progress as an OASIS Candidate standard. At least three SOU (at least one of them by an OASIS member) are required in order to submit a candidate OASIS standard (OASIS, 2014). Seven SOU were collected during the aforementioned dates and approved by the OASIS XLIFF Technical Committee (XLIFF TC) on 15th April 2014. Although 7 complete responses were collected, 3 of them count as a single SOU by OASIS policy as they were made by the same implementer. Effectively XLIFF has gathered 5 SOU of which 3 were by OASIS members, so the TC Process requirement was satisfied and the TC Officers requested that TC Administration hold a Special Majority Vote to approve submitting of XLIFF Version 2.0, Committee Specification 01, published on 31 March 2014 as a candidate OASIS standard. The seven tools that have implemented XLIFF 2.0 have been developed by content owners, tool makers, service providers and researchers. Their answers give us a good overview of the early implementations of the new XLIFF version. This report is indeed a snapshot of the state of the art back in April 2014 as several new implementations are underway in the meantime and also the SOU changed, most notably, modules support has been boosted.
