MultilingualWeb-LT Working Group closed, ITS community continues in ITS IG

The MultilingualWeb-LT Working Group has been closed, since it successfully completed the work in its charter.

We thank the co-chairs, the editors, implementers and the Working Group for achieving the goal to publish Internationalization Tag Set (ITS) 2.0 as a W3C Recommendation, and for doing so ahead of the original schedule.

Work on enlarging the community around ITS, gathering feedback and requirements for future work will now continue in the ITS Interest Group.

Last Call Working Draft of Internationalization Tag Set (ITS) 2.0 Published

This document defines data categories and their implementation as a set of elements and attributes called the Internationalization Tag Set (ITS) 2.0.

ITS 2.0 is designed to foster the creation and localization of multilingual Web content, focusing on HTML5, XML based formats in general, and to leverage localization workflows based on the XML Localization Interchange File Format (XLIFF), and language technology applications like machine translation or named entity annotation. In addition to HTML5 and XML, algorithms to convert ITS attributes to NIF is provided.

Last Call means that the MultilingualWeb-LT Working Group feels that ITS 2.0 is ready to move to recommendation. If you have comments on the document, please send them to the list mentioned in the document status before 10 January.

Updated Working Draft of Internationalization Tag Set (ITS) 2.0 published

ITS 2.0 responds to current and future needs to extend ITS 1.0 by providing metadata (ITS “data categories”) for HTML5 as well as XML, using ITS data categories for RDF, and adding new data categories relevant for localization and language technologies.

In addition to various clarifications and smaller changes from the second version released in July, this third version of the document adds additional data categories that are now ready for review: Disambiguation, Preserve Space, Id Value, Target Pointer, Preserve Space, Localization Quality Issue, and Localization Quality Précis. In addition it adds support for the use of CSS selectors as an alternative to XPath, updates the ruby markup section to match the HTML5 ruby model, and simplifies a number of sections for greater usability

Please take a look at the new version, and send any comments to public-multilingualweb-lt-comments@w3.org (subscribe at the archive main page). Use “ITS 2.0 WD Comment” at the beginning of the subject line of your email, and add something descriptive after it.

Send any comments before the beginning of October. We are planning to publish a new working draft in October, and a feature complete “last call” working draft in November.
