3 Objectives

Recently, a "translate" attribute has been added to HTML5

I propose that we discuss concrete implementations that can make use of this attribute for HTML5 and for other formats, see for XML the ITS definition at

Scenarios could be:

  • Automatic generation of "translate" attributes for web content (Enricher - Tadej)
  • Creation of templates for web authors with "translate" attributes set (Cocomore - Moritz)
  • A localization chain for Web and other (?) content including a dashboard making use of this attribute (Pedro + Phil)
  • Usage of the attribute in XLIFF and (or) for generation of XLIFF (Yves, David Filip)
  • Generation of files with the attribute from DocBook and DITA files (Jirka)
  • Many others ...

During the meeting I would like to discuss above scenarios and see where we can agree on concrete implementation scenarios already. We can standardized "bottom up" and see what piece of standardization is good for real life scenarios, that is including real customers.
