Abstract

This paper is a write up of the FEISGILTT 2014 keynote on whether or not XLIFF 2.0 was a successful evolution of the XLIFF 1.x standard. This offers a higher level perspective on the chances that XLIFF 2.x is to become the common denominator of the localization industry. This is an honest and clear discussion of how XLIFF 2.0 has learnt from XLIFF 1.2 issues, which also suggests that the XLIFF 2.0 object model has potential to influence how localization data and metadata are exchanged at lower granularity through webservices, based not only on XML.
