RE: [Minutes] MLW-LT call 2013-05-22

Hi Dave,

I have added the comment on Terminology section. In general, the usability of visual designs, layouts, markers, etc. used to display ITS metadata in CAT user interface needs to be carefully investigated and evaluated by translators and editors at early stage of development. I would recommend to run a separate development project to emulate user interface of CAT tools enriched with ITS metadata support. The results of such emulation could be provided to CAT developers as recommendations.

Hi Renat, Serge,
This Logrus work sounds really interesting to us. I've currently got an MSc student, Pablo (cc'd) working on a XLIFF+ITS->HTML5+ITS mapping for a project on adaptive web based CAT UIs, it would be good to compare and perhaps harmonised approaches.

Also, if you had any thoughts on the draft requirements we were circulating on presenting ITS markup in CAT tools at:

please feel free to add comment to the google doc directly.

  I'll be consolidating the existing comments, and the previous feedback from the list into this document shortly.
