Localisation Focus, an
international research journal concerned with localization and standardization,
has published an article titled Visualization
of ITS 2.0 Metadata for Localization Process (VOL. 12 Issue 1 (2013)). It
covers the results of applied development by Logrus for the the World Wide Web
Consortium (W3C) as part of efforts to implement the ITS 2.0 localization
metadata standard. We have developed tools for visualizing content-embedded
metadata of the ITS 2.0 standard. This significantly improves the quality
of translation and speeds up the localization of content in XML, HTML, and
XLIFF formats. Metadata can contain information about terms, the interface
elements to be left untranslated, the meaning of polysemic concepts, and the
like. The results have been published and are freely
accessible as an Open Source product.
