RE: [ISSUE-55] ITS in XLIFF - CAT tool requirements

Hi Dave,

I wonder if Anuar's work could, or even should look at the CAT-ITS relationship not just from an XLIFF point-of-view.

To me, a scenario in which CAT tools in some contexts work natively with ITS - and not "mediated" via XLIFF - seems appealing. Possibly, you already know that some CAT tools already provide this kind of native ITS 1.0 support.

To a certain degree, the native ITS support would be in line with "To foster interoperability, implementers are strongly encouraged not to rely on these mappings and to implement the ITS 2.0 quality types natively." (from:

The existing list of "Use Cases" is quite interesting. I would be tempted to differentiate between two categories: "visualization", and "interaction".

Subject: [ISSUE-55] ITS in XLIFF - CAT tool requirements

Hi all,
As you may know, we have an intern Anuar Serikov, who will be working on 
support for ITS annotation in the open source CAT tool OmegaT.

As an first step we've produced a rough draft set of requirements for 
how users of a CAT tool could interact with ITS2.0 annotations at:

This may be of interest in those looking at the XLIFF-ITS mapping, since 
the requirements assume use of ITS within XLIFF. Any comments or 
feedback would be very welcome.
