Here’s what the current beta version looks like:
I gave a live demonstration of our Review Sentinel integration last Wednesday to a large customer. It went very well and showcased how seamlessly we have been able to bring innovation to an MT+PE process that has a GMS as its backbone. The final workflow is illustrated below.
XLIFF 2.0 was approved as an OASIS Standard on August 6, 2014.
XLIFF 2.0 aims to address much of the feedback and criticisms of XLIFF 1.2 and has a new modular architecture which has a mandatory Core and optional modules which can be developed as independent projects.
Okapi has released a library called the XLIFF 2.0 Toolkit which has no dependencies upon 3rd party XML Parsers and provides an easy to use set of classes and methods for reading, modifying and writing XLIFF 2.0 files.
I’m really looking forward to working with XLIFF 2.0. As an advocate of Intelligent Content and distributed workflows and services for localization, I am keen to use the Metadata module in particular.
We plan to start work on building support for XLIFF 2.0 into Ocelot at the beginning of September.
I have been working on improving the physical integration of Review Sentinel with SDL WorldServer using Microsoft Azure Blob Storage and SendGrid notifications.
Programming to the Enterprise Service Bus architectural model always makes me smile. Loosely-coupled applications which collaborate to provide a distributed, scalable, fault-tolerant workflow.
The diagram below shows the overall architecture. The small bit of impedence is the lack of support in SDL WorldServer for the ITS 2.0 Localisation Quality metadata category which Review Sentinel uses to serialise its conformance scores within XLIFF.
