This document defines version 2.0 of the XML Localisation Interchange

TC Description:

Advancing a multi-lingual data exchange standard for localisation. XLIFF 
TC currently works on the major new version of the XLIFF standard, XLIFF 
2.0 that supersedes XLIFF 1.2 produced by the same TC. The 2.0 public 
review release contains a core specification along with 8 modules with 
advanced data and metadata exchange functionality in various areas such 
translation candidates, size restrictions, formatting preview etc.

Public Review Period:
