Localization quality types mappings

From ITS
Jump to: navigation, search

Version: 24 June 2013

Purpose

This page gathers informative mappings between ITS 2.0 localization quality issue types and other types used to specify quality issues: types produced by quality check tools, defined in other specifications etc.

Mapping to MQM

The MQM model is one model for quality metrics still under development. See the MQM version 24 June 2013. Hence the mapping to MQM it is currently being discussed and cannot be regarded as stable.

Update of this page

The ITS Interest Group maintains this page. To make an update to this page, you only need a W3C account. Announce your update on the ITS Interest Group mailling list to get feedback.

The underlying definition of Localization Quality Issue Type values is at http://www.w3.org/TR/its20/#lqissue-typevalues.

Mappings for Localization Quality Issue Types

The following table provides mappings of native quality assurance issue codes for a number of common localization quality tools to locQualityType values. Tool developers are free to map their own issue codes to the locQualityType values and are encouraged to make their mappings publicly available. Tools that produce ITS 2.0 loc-quality markup should ensure that the output of their tools matches any publicly available mappings they may produce.
