Type of document:
Standard
Organization:

Description:
XML Localization Interchange File Format (XLIFF) is an XML vocabulary designed for interchanging translatable content. It aims to enable a consistent and regular format for presenting content for translation while supporting the whole translation work flow process.
Workflow stage:
1.3, 1.6, 1.10, 1.13, 2.1, 2.3, 2.5, 2.9, 2.11
Business value:
Streamline the translation process by reducing file management and file formatting tasks. XLIFF is also ideal for use in Web services. Since it is XML based, containment within a SOAP envelope is a trivial matter, and XLIFF accommodates all other necessary content for job tracking and processing.
