The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), a major international organization with a mission to develop and implement technology standards for the Web, has published the results of pilot projects implementing the ITS 2.0 (internalization tags) standard:
Among them is a Logrus project that aims to create a Work in Context technology for delivering context information. It is based on the ITS 2.0 standard and uses the capabilities of the HTML5 format:
ITS 2.0 Metadata Previewer
ITS 2.0 File Format Converters
We have developed tools for visualizing content-embedded metadata of the ITS 2.0 standard. This significantly simplifies 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.
Thanks to this solution, translators and editors now have access to terminology databases, client instructions, links to relevant websites, and information about terms, interface elements, and much more, as they process text. The Work in Context technology does not require installing specialized software. Any browser will suffice to use it.
