Description:
Segmentation Rules eXchange (SRX) is an XML-based standard for the description of the ways in which translation and other language-processing tools segment text for processing. Designed to enhance the TMX standard to optimize the exchangeability of translation memories. This standard has been transferred to the ETSI LIS.
Workflow stage:
2.1, 2.3, 2.11
Business value:
Differences in segmentation are the main causes of incompatibilities in translation memories between CAT tools. This standard can help to increase compatibility between CAT tools, thereby increasing options and facilitating tools use by translation companies. It may also help in developing term extraction tools.
