Hi all,

I had a look at "Best Practice 11: Provide a way to override terminology-related information".

Please find my high-level feedback is below.



I guess the motivation (preferably in "Why do this") could be more explicit. We may want to reuse text from BP 10 like

"The capability of specifying terms within the source content is important for terminology management that is beneficial to translation and localization quality. Term identification also facilitates the creation of glossaries and allows validation of terminology usage in the source and target documents."


Quote> Make also sure the its:rules element is available somewhere in your documents

We may want to reuse the wording for "its:rules" from Best Practice 8 (which amongst others indicates that we can have file-external rules).


Quote> this will allow authors to override terminology-related information at the element level.

In case the native/host vocabulary does not have a means to specifying terms, "its:term" will not only serve the purpose of overriding but of specifying.
