Subject: XML and Localization Seminar in Boston


XML and Localization 

17 June 2002 Boston, MA

Presenter: Yves Savourel
Cost: $795 reduced rates available for more than 1 registration


Description
The seminar will look at XML from the localization viewpoint: as a
format
used more and more to store translatable material, as well as a format
localizers can take advantage of to improve their processes. The seminar
will provide an overview of the basic facets of XML and its related
technologies, underlining the internationalization aspects. It will
present
guidelines to create XML vocabularies and to author XML documents with
localization in mind. It will illustrate how to implement re-usability,
localization directives, as well as various some of the other advantages
XML can offer. Localizing XML documents and interfaces will be covered
by
looking at the various current solutions, addressing some of their
implementation issues and examining how to take advantage of
interoperability to create alternate efficient processes. The class will
also delve into the different existing localization-related formats, it
will look more especially at XLIFF and how to take advantage of it. All
parts of the seminar will be illustrated by many concrete examples, and
some hand-on exercises.
