Metadata for the Multilingual Web - Usage Scenarios and Implementations

Abstract

The W3C Internationalization Tag Set 2.0 - developed by the W3C MultilingualWeb-LT Working Group enhances the foundation to integrate automated processing of human language into core Web technologies. ITS 2.0 bears many commonalities with is predecessor ITS 1.0 but provides additional concepts that are designed to foster the automated creation and processing of multilingual Web content. ITS 2.0 focuses on HTML, XML-based formats in general, and can leverage processing based on the XML Localization Interchange File Format (XLIFF), as well as the Natural Language Processing Interchange Format (NIF).
The W3C MultilingualWeb-LT Working Group received funding by the European Commission (project LT-Web|) through the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) in the area of Language Technologies (Grant Agreement No. 287815). As part of their activities, members of the Working Group and the LT-Web project created various implementations that exemplify how ITS 2.0 supports automated processing of human language into core Web technologies. These implementations/the corresponding usage scenarios are sketched in this document. Each section of the document comprises the following:
  • Description - An explanation of the scenario
  • Data category usage - An explanation which of the ITS 2.0 data categories are involved in the automated processing; (for details on the data categories, W3C Internationalization Tag Set 2.0 has to be consulted)
  • Benefits - Reasons why the ITS 2.0 data categories enable or enhance the automated processing
  • Information on Implementation Status/Issues - Links to tools and implementers (detailed information, running software, source code etc.)
