ETSI establishes Industry Specification Group for LIS

Thursday 14 July 2011 | 11:26 CET | News
The European Telecommunications Standard Institute (ETSI) has established an Industry Specification Group (ISG) for Localisation Industry Standards (LIS). This group will develop XML-based specifications for information exchange in the computer-assisted translation industry, and its first meeting will take place on the 18 August at ETSI. The localisation industry has developed specifications for common data formats for data exchange related to computer-assisted translation. With the recent closure of the Localization Industry Standards Association (LISA), a number of ETSI members involved in the LISA work have decided to establish a new group at ETSI using the Industry Specification Group model. Members and participants of the LIS ISG, including WhP International, Lionbridge, IBM, Dell and Alcatel-Lucent plan to extend the existing XML-based specifications for computer assisted translation, including TMX (Translation Memory eXchange) and SRX (Segmentation Rules eXchange). The ISG is open to participation from outside the ETSI membership.
