Announcing Freedesktop.org's XLIFF Tools Project.

XLIFF (XML Localisation Interchange File Format) [1] is an open XML standard
for exchange of localisable data. XLIFF has many features that other
localisation formats (such as Gettext PO) is lacking, including support for
binary data formats, workflow support and inclusion of translation
suggestions from e.g. TMX [2] based translation memories.

The XLIFF Tools project aims to implement support for XLIFF in open source
localisation workflows. Specifically, this project aims to:
 - Develop XLIFF filters for common open source file formats (e.g.
Gettext PO, Docbook, .desktop files, Glade/Qt UI dialogs)
 - Implement and improve XLIFF support in open source localisation tools
 - Implement tools to support XLIFF-based localisation in open source
development processes.

The first phase of this project will be focusing on the Gettext PO file
format. As a first step, guidelines will be defined on how to represent PO in
XLIFF. This guide will be submitted to the XLIFF Technical Committee for
review and possible inclusion as the XLIFF 1.1 PO File Representation Guide

The first set of tools being developed are filters to convert between PO and
XLIFF, based on the XLIFF PO representation guide:
 - po2xliff: Convert a PO file to XLIFF
 - xliff2po: Convert a XLIFF file back to PO
 - xliffinit: Initialize a XLIFF file for a specific locale
 - xliffmerge: Merge translated XLIFF file with newly created XLIFF template
(similar to msgmerge for PO)
