------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  
  == Description: ==
  
- It should be possible to identify terms inside an element or a span. Terms should be either associated with attributes for related term information or linked to external terminology data. 
+ It should be possible to identify terms inside an element or a span and to provide data for terminology management and index generation. Terms should be either associated with attributes for related term information or linked to external terminology data. 
   
  
  == Background: ==
  
- The capability to specify terms within the source content is important for terminology management that is beneficial to translation/localization quality. It facilitates, for example, the creation of glossaries and indexes, and also allows terminology validation between source and target documents.
+ The capability of specifying terms within the source content is important for terminology management that is beneficial to translation/localization quality. Terms to be identified include any domain-specific words and abbribiations for which translators need additional information in order to find appropriate concepts in their target langauges. Term identification also facilitates the creation of glossaries and allows validation of terminology usage in the source and target documents.
  
- Terms may require various attributes, such as part of speech, gender, number, term types, definitions, notes on usage, etc. To avoid such a large attribute data is repeated within a document, it should be possible for identified terms to link to externalized attribute data, such as glossary documents and terminology database.  
+ Meanwhile, identified terms could be used for indexing that may require some language specific information. For example, Japanse words are sorted not by script characters, but by phonetic characters. Therefore when a Japanese index item should be accompanied with a phonetic string, called Yomigana.
+ 
+ As a result, terms may require various attributes, such as part of speech, gender, number, term types, definitions, notes on usage, etc. To avoid such a large attribute data is repeated within a document, it should be possible for identified terms to link to externalized attribute data, such as glossary documents and terminology database.
