Thanks for the feedback.


First: I’ve replaced “S+T” by “S or T” has it was in Dave’s original proposal.


I’ve also change the scope for ‘length’ from “T” to “S or T” as this issue can obviously be applied to either contents.


As for ‘mistranslated’ and ‘untranslated’: I’m not sure I understand why those would be applying to the source. For example, if I process a source document there is no way I can generate such issue.


Maybe the problem is that we don’t define what “scope” means?

I assumed that meant: the issue can be detected when processing the source/target content. But maybe I’m wrong. Could you elaborate your idea Dave?

Dear Felix, Dave and all,

In reviewing the "new draft" below, concentrating on sections related to quality, I find an inconsistency in the "scope" values in the table, referred to at 6.18.1 Definition, as list of type values <http://www.w3.org/International/multilingualweb/lt/drafts/its20/its20.html#lqissue-typevalues> :    <http://www.w3.org/International/multilingualweb/lt/drafts/its20/its20.html#lqissue-typevalues> <http://www.w3.org/International/multilingualweb/lt/drafts/its20/its20.html#lqissue-typevalues>.

Specifically, I find that "mistranslation" and "untranslated" and just as much "S+T" (Source and Target) scoped, as, e.g. "omission" or "inconsistency". 

Saying that "mistranslation" and "untranslated" relate in scope only to "T" (Target) doesn't make sense.

"addition" and "duplication" are the only two Values in this table that should be truly scope "T" (Target) only.
All others, i.e. including "mistranslation" and "untranslated" should be scoped as "S+T" (Source and Target).

Kind regards,
