Here is a draft for the Term Identification requirement. Please post any
comments on this.


[Term identification]



It should be possible to identify terms inside an element or a span together
with related attributes. 



The capability to specify terms within the source content is important for
terminology management and index creation. It facilitates, for example, the
creation of glossaries and indexes, and also allows terminology validation
between source and target documents.

Each term should be accompanied by term attributes depending on
identification purposes. If it's for glossary data, term attributes may be
part-of-speech and a term type, while index terms may have a sorting string.



Members discussed TMX-Link and TBX-Link as references (see Minutes
2005-03-03: ITS teleconference), and the both standards should be reviewed
when the solution for this requirement is reviewed.
