The OSCAR Standards committee of the Localization Industry Standards
Association has posted its draft SRX (Segmentation Rules Exchange) .05
Specification document for a one month public review period. The SRX
specification was developed by the OSCAR Segmentation work group to define
an industry standard format to represent segmentation rules used in
translation memory applications.

The document to review is available here:

Please send any feedback and comments to OSCAR members Brian Briggs and
Paolo Vanni:

The public review ends on January 27, 2004.

One thing that is not currently reflected in the document is the following:
OSCAR is currently reviewing a proposal that states that, in order for a
Translation Memory tool to be certified as SRX-compliant, the tool would
need to be able to export a TMX file that contains a pointer to an SRX file
that would describe the segmentation rules used to generate that TMX file.
