Hi Yves, all


> • pivotLang - value: standard ISO value

What is a pivot language? The source language?

[Pedro] pivotLang is an intermediate language. This is necessary for example
for two scenarios:

1) Going for example from a source language to two language variants (eg.
Into Brazil and Portugal Portuguese), it is more effective (chipper) to go
to one first (being this first variant a "pivot" language) and to revise
later to the second variant.

2) Going for example from a language to another using an intermediate
language (eg. Going from Maltese into English and from English into Irish,
because there is not direct Maltese into Irish available translation).

I hope this clarifies.
Pedro

Thanks for the descriptions Pedro.
A few questions/note:

Same note as the MT domain: a selector attribute without a defined list of
values is not really useable as part of a standard. I think that's something
we need to be careful about with any data categories.

Could the value be a MIME type value?
